66 | Inside The World's Most Famous ICE HOTEL
There are some extraordinary experiences in Lapland. But the most unusual is to sleep in a hotel made entirely of ice! So I've posted few hours ago the episode 3 of the travel series in Northern Europe. And of course, it's about the Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi, Sweden. You can see a short trailer on your phone here. What do you think? ❤️
Let's clarify this. There are 2 hotels: ICEHOTEL Winter and ICEHOTEL 365. Just few metres away from each other in the stunning village of Jukkasjärvi.
The iconic ICEHOTEL Winter operates from December to April every year. This is the world's first and most famous ice hotel. The ice sculptors get to work in November once the Torne River freezes over and they use this ice to bring the stunning rooms to life. These rooms and the whole hotel melts in Spring.
The good news is that if you come between April and November, you could also enjoy the ICEHOTEL 365. There is some fascinating art here. Each room is seriously a masterpiece.
The hotel rooms are kept at a temperature of between -5 and -10°C (23 and 14°F) to ensure that the ice stays intact. They are adorned with hand-sculpted ice art and you sleep on a bed of ice, yes this is real. However, to make it comfortable, you still have a thick mattress, some warm (very!) sleeping bags and reindeer hides. ❄️
If you feel like going for a drink, no problem, there's an Ice Bar for you. Even the glasses are made of ice. 🧊
This is by far the coolest hotel I've ever been. How can you even beat a hotel that is 200 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle? 🐻❄️
Have a great week!
