Every year, 50,000 plus visitors flock to ICEHOTEL, a hotel in Jukkasjärvi, a small village in Northern Sweden. Not only is this hotel made of ice, it transforms itself every year with a new design theme.

This year marks its 25th anniversary, where different designers came to help sculpt each room. Not only is each room different, there’s also an ice bar, church, and pillar hall.

During March and April, ice is harvested from Torne River and then stored until November and December, when designers from around the world come to help take part in the artistic construction that is ICEHOTEL. The hotel lasts from December to mid-April, then slowly melts back into the Torne River. Pretty much a circle of life (or ice?). We’d love to get the chance to stay in one of these incredible rooms.
