With the relentless summer heat currently spreading across the Midwest and East Coast, there’s no better time to check into Sweden’s ICEHOTEL.ICEHOTEL, a hotel literally built of ice and snow, started out as a design project in Jukkasjärv, Sweden, 22 years ago. It was, of course, inspired by Sweden’s cold arctic climate and the majestic native Torne river.
The hotel’s out-of-this-world design has gained recognition from visitors around the globe and has spawned imitations in Norway, Romania, Canada, and Alaska.
