Once you are there, you get to sleep in special sleeping bags on beds made of snow and ice and covered with reindeer skins. Several cabins with bunk beds are available. At morning-time you'll get a hot drink brought to the bedside. Warm outdoor clothing will also be provided. There is no food served inside the hotel because any heat would cause the structure to melt. Two wood-burning fire places are encased in glass.
One of the celebrated Quebec Ice Hotel's attractions is the Absolut Bar. It's the main hangout for hotel guests. The drink of choice is flavored vodka and served in glasses carved out of ice. The Absolut Bar plays host to many events and guests throughout the season with up 200 people at a time. The Ice Hotel offers many packages; you can also visit without staying overnight.
Sweden Ice Hotel is built on the shores of the Torne River, in the old village of Jukkasjarvi in Swedish Lapland. The Hotel is built from scratch every year. A new design, new suites and new reception, well, everything in it is crisp and new from year to year. Covering more than 30,000 square feet, the Ice Hotel has an ice sauna, ice chapel, a cinema and an Absolut Ice bar that's also different every year. Outdoor activities include dog sledding, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, skating and ice-fishing. Spending the night at one of the Ice Hotels is not that difficult, according the tour guides. Once you get inside the sleeping bags and your body heat warms it up, it can get so warm that you can start sweating! Dates to visit the Swedish attraction run from January to mid-April.
Who knows, maybe one day, you'll be brave enough to spend the night at the Ice Hotel!
