The world-famous ICEHOTEL outside Kiruna was initially just a crazy idea for the winter. These days it’s just as crazy – but all year round.
Normally at this time of year in Swedish Lapland, something sad happens. ICEHOTEL in Jukkasjärvi melts to the ground and pours itself back into the Torne River, the origin of the ice used to build the hotel. Other hotels talk about the importance of recycling, but ICEHOTEL has always taken it a step further, recycling the entire hotel. But not this year.
