A Hotel and Art Gallery Made of Ice Near the Arctic Circle

The ICEHOTEL #23, a temporary hotel and art gallery, is located in Jukkasjärvi, 200 km north of the Arctic Circle. The ice is made from water supplied by the nearby Torne River. Within the hotel there are artists’ "suites" where artists who have been selected by ICEHOTEL’s Art & Design Group come from all over the world to create one of a kind site specific art exhibitions. Some artists have taken a literal approach to their hotel suite complete with beds, fur bed coverings, and light fixtures. This thoroughly documented project will be on display until the ice melts in the spring. See more beautiful photographs after the jump!
