Ice Hotel. Foyer of the Ice Hotel, a hotel within the Arctic Circle in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden, made entirely from snow and ice. The hotel is the world's largest igloo. It is built every winter by spraying 30,000 tonnes of snow onto moulds which are removed once the snow has compacted. 10,000 tonnes of river ice are also used, for example for these columns. The hotel sleeps over 100 guests on ice beds covered in animal pelts. Visitors remain warm in their sleeping bags despite temperatures that drop to -9 degrees Celsius. Guests can visit the ice exhibition hall, sauna, ice cinema or ice chapel, as well as drink from glasses made from ice in the ice bar. The hotel melts every May.
