Since its inception in 1989, the Icehotel located in the town of Jukkasjärvi in northern Sweden, has been built and rebuilt. Situated near the Arctic Circle, this latest 2017 edition is the 28th variation of the famed establishment.

Construction involves harvesting thousands of ice blocks from a nearby frozen river, along with a mixture of snow and ice. Boasting 15 rooms that includes warm rooms, sub-zero ice rooms, an ice bar, art pieces, as well as a ceremony hall suitable for weddings, a total of 36 artists from 17 different countries from around the world were chosen to sculpt this 2017 edition of the Icehotel.

Guests who are unfazed by the cold temperature are treated with a hot drink, hot shower, or sauna, along with a roaring fireplace available, while other activities include a northern lights tour on snowmobile, a half-day tour via dog sled, ice sculpting, and yoga.

With the Icehotel running until April 15, after which time it will begin to melt away, pricing for rooms starts at 2,250 SEK or around $267 USD.
