The Ice Hotel is located outside of Kiruna in JukkasjÀrvi. Both the hotel and church next to it are sculpted entirely out of ice and snow every year, Blocks of ice are farmed from the Torne River in March and put into freezer storage. Then as soon as winter begins, a team of artists from around the world begins sculpting and designing the rooms. By December, a completely new hotel is crafted and ready for guests.
