Lodging: Ice Hotels
Do you know of an exotic hotel or other
lodging that should be included here? Send me the details.
Aurora Ice Hotel. U.S.A. Chena Hot Springs Resort,
"As seen on NBC, FOX, CNN and CBS...
The Aurora Ice Hotel is open! It is the only ice hotel in
the United States, it is the only one built by an artist.
What an experience! What a beautiful piece of art! You must
come see it, and if you are adventuresome enough, come stay
in one of the unique rooms.
Princess Anne's room, the igloo, the polar bear room,
Heather's Artichoke room, the bridal suite or our cave
room... each one is different, each one is special. The
quietness, the peace, the artistic ambiance is spectacular.
The unique bar serves drinks in sculpted ice glasses, the
fireplace glows with amber flickers, the jousting knight
protects the lobby and the wedding gazebo reflects the
clarity of God's pure environment."
Hotel. northern Lapland, Sweden.
"Imagine a hotel built from thousands of
tons of snow and ice, and re-built every winter- that is
Icehotel in the little village of Jukkasjârvi in northern
In Icehotel there are double rooms and suites for
overnight guests, a lobby, a pillar hall, film auditorium
and of course the famous Absolut Icebar - where folk from
all over the world socialize till late.
In November, building starts on the unique Icehotel and
the official opening is in mid December.
By the time the spring sunshine has done its work and the
Icehotel has slowly but surely made way for summer and has
run back into the River Torne, May has arrived. At the end
of April or the beginning of May, we close Icehotel for
the season - all depending on the weather gods however."
