Now in its 29th edition, Sweden’s pop-up ice hotel is back, and its 15 rooms include animals, trees and lollipops carved out of ice.

Icehotel is redesigned every year by artists from around the world, and built from the frozen Torne river in Jukkasjärvi. It stays on the riverbank until summer, when its 2,500 tonnes of ice melts and the water returns to its source.

Guests staying at the hotel receive a survival course that teaches them what to wear and how to make the bed with arctic sleeping bags – designed for temperatures as low as -25°.

Rooms at the Icehotel are upwards of 2,820.00 SEK per night. Visitors can choose from suites shaped like a woodland camp – complete with a VW van and glowing fire – and a sweet shop, including a bed surrounded by swirly lollipops.
