Travel Fantasy: Ice Hotel

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

In just little under a month one of my friends and her husband are taking a weekend off and fly to a tiny village in Sweden called Jukkasjärvi. The home of the most amazing Ice Hotel. Besides sleeping in - 5°C (23°F), eating the fresh local flavours of Swedish Lapland and dog sledding, they are also embarking on the Northern lights tour with the other hotel guests. Doesn’t that sound awesome? The hotel itself is beyond stunning and each guest can choose their favourite room from 21 different suites. They also give you guidelines for how to dress for the cold and how to sleep in the freezing temperatures. Loves, would you go? xo

P.S: But of course if you are not too keen on the freeze, you can experience it as well, as instead of the cold accomodation, you can choose the warm one.
P.P.S: Amazing solar storm!

Whats amazing about these hotels is not only that it's in ice, but the details and the carvings in the ice! Once in a lifetime experience...so I would say yes I would! I hope they have a wonderful time! :)

This hotel is gorgeous! While dog sledding and seeing the Northern Lights sounds awesome, I just don't think I could sleep in that cold of a room.
