The world's first permanent ice hotel, Icehotel 365, has recently opened its doors in Sweden. Located roughly 125 miles from the Arctic Circle, the 2,100-square-foot resort houses 20 suites for its guests, in addition to a bar and an art gallery.
Here's the kicker, though; the entire space has been created out of snow and ice by various artists from around the world.
The 2016 variation of Icehotel 365 is the resorts 27th in total, dating back to 1989. The hotel has in turn been created from around 30,000 liters of water, taken from the neighboring Torne river.
The now-permanent Icehotel 365 was built on a former ice storage site, which sits adjacent to the existing hotel. Now, temperatures inside the premises drop to as low as 23 degrees Fahrenheit, as the refrigerating plant ensures that the hotel remains cold throughout the warmer season thanks to energy from solar panels, which is harvested during the summer months.
Earlier this year the world's first "gamer hotel" opened in Amsterdam.
