The ‘ice hotel’ concept has never been so attractive!

Although it seems impossible to spend the night in a room made of ice or snow, it has become one of the strangest travel trends of recent years. Ice hotel concepts, the first examples of which began to appear in the late 1980s, attract those who want to experience a different experience with their completely different features, even if they are not very comfortable. Offering interesting experiences beyond everything from sleeping on reindeer skins in ice-carved beds to artistic design and restaurants decorated with sculptures every year, these hotels usually open their doors in January and close in April. We took 6 best examples from the world here.

Snow Hotel, Kemi, Finland

A 21-room hotel is being opened in the Snow Castle, which was established in the winter region of Finland’s Lapland region. The building, which is constructed with a different architectural and decorative style every year, also includes master-made ice-carved reliefs and sculptures on its walls. For those who want to get married in a magical atmosphere, a chapel made entirely of snow and ice has been added. Room prices start at $ 410 per night.

Icehotel, Jukkasjärvi, Sweden

The first example of the ice (or snow) hotel concept was established in 1989 in the town of Jukkasjärvi, Sweden. Icehotel comes to life every year in the hands of artists from all over the world to create an art feast of ice and light. During their stay, guests can enjoy a range of activities, including a dog sled tour, the Northern Lights safari and cross-country skiing. Prices start at $ 150.

Hôtel de Glace, Quebec, Canada

Perhaps this is the reason why this Canadian hotel, which seems to have skyrocketed from the movie Frozen, with its external appearance, is often used as a set by film producers. While the cellar-like architecture of independent ice structures attracts everyone, ice-sled canals, glacier-themed cafes, and ice-making courses provide an enjoyable stay for guests. Prices start at $ 385 per night.

Iglu-Dorf, Gstaad, Switzerland

Heating system igloos, outdoor jacuzzis and the magnificent view of the Swiss Alps are some of the beauties this village offers. Guests can enjoy the winter in the entertainment organized with different themes at Snow Bar, accompanied by food and hot wine. Prices start at $ 160.

Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel, Alta, Norway

This igloo can be resisted by the average -6 degrees cold in the rooms of the hotel with sleeping bags suitable for the black winter and bedding material made of reindeer leather and fur. Of course there are also heated, ice or not areas. For example, we are confident that we can spend the most varied and enjoyable moments of our lives with the hot wine in front of the fireplace in the photo. Rooms in the hotel in Norway start at $ 278 per night.

Hotel of Ice, Sibiu, Romania

In the midst of desolation in Transylvania, Hotel of Ice is like a haunted ice museum that reveals the winters. The hotel management contracts with a group of ice and snow sculptors every year to build ice structures within a specific theme. Last year’s theme was iconic movies from Jaws to Star Wars, for example. We are sure that it still offers an unforgettable experience regardless of the theme. Prices start at $ 107 per night.
