Now it’s official, this winter I will build one of the15 suites at this season’s 29th ICEHOTEL.
Contributions came from all over the world; Sweden, USA, India, Canada, Mexico and New Zealand among others. A list of all the artists involved in the creation of ICEHOTEL #29 is presented here: https://www.icehotel.com/list-of-art-artists-icehotel-29/
Get a night’s sleep in a candy store full of sweets, sleep in a suite with a swiming woman that loves ice and slumber into an aquarium with a huge cat as a spectator. This is three of the design proposals awaiting visitors on December 14th, when ICEHOTEL opens the doors of the seasonal opening of the hotel.
Every year the hotel is visited by about 50,000 guests from all over the world, about 50 wedding couples get married among ice and snow and many guests has eaten the famous Ice Menu in the ICEHOTEL Restaurant, which serves a five course menu on plates made of ice, directly from the Torne River.
Building the hotel for each season requires a huge effort, starting with 5,000 tonnes of ice taken from Torne River in March. The ice is then stored until October each year when the construction of ICEHOTEL starts.
The 14th of December opens the season’s ICEHOTEL.
