 Ice hotel

If you are looking for a unique holiday the ice hotel in Norway is the perfect destination. Rebuilt every year since 2000, the ice hotel covers over 2000 square feet of snowy ground and its doors are opened to guests every January before it melts away in spring. The ice hotel is situated by the banks of the Alta River on the edge of the Arctic Circle and its interior and exterior are made entirely out of ice and snow.

Inside the ice hotel majestic sculptures of Norwegian wildlife and all the furnishings are carved from ice, with ice chandeliers hanging from the ceiling and ice chairs sitting on the ground. When you arrive at the ice hotel in Norway you will be given a guided tour that shows you everything in the hotel and gives you all the information you will need for your stay.

There are 30 bedrooms and 2 suites in the hotel where guests can sleep. The hotel is kept at a constant temperature of around -4 to -7 degrees centigrade but you will be kept warm during the night with a sleeping bag that can keep people warm up to extreme temperatures of -30 degrees centigrade. You will sleep on bed made from a genuine reindeer hide.

Should you fancy a strong drink, there is a bar in the ice hotel that is made entirely out of ice. The bar serves only one drink, bright blue vodka in a glass that is also made out of ice - a splash of colour in a white winter wonderland.

Regardless of the time of year you visit - with the mystical midnight sun, a spectacular thunderstorm or the magical Northern Lights.
