Icehotel resort in Jukkasjärvi, in the north of Sweden, is open and ready.
Six new art suites have been created in Icehotel 365 and that means the entire resort made entirely of ice and snow is now finished for this year.
Collaborating with Icehotel’s building team, ice production, creative support and lighting designers, 35 artists have created 12 unique art suites in Icehotel 31 and six new art suites in Icehotel 365 and a ceremony hall for intimate weddings and other celebrations.
Icehotel 31 can be experienced from December 11 to April 11, 2021, then the winter-open part of Icehotel melts down to the Torne River again. The permanent part of the hotel, Icehotel 365, then remains and offers ice and snow experiences all year round.
For over 30 years Icehotel has been welcoming people from all over the world, but this year things have had to change because of travel restrictions. For those who are unable to travel in person, Icehotel has created an Augmented Reality Experience on Instagram – a digital journey to Icehotel’s world of ice and snow – from your living room.
