Inside the Ice Hotel

The Hotel is quite light inside during the day
as there are many panels of clear ice in the walls

  

 In the lounge, a warm atmosphere is created with a fire place and armchairs made useable with reindeer furs.

 

The warmest place in the Hotel is actually the toilet block situated in an open internal courtyard and heated to prevent the pipes freezing. After a night in the hotel the toilet feels sub-tropical.

 

The bar on the left
is made of slabs of
ice and the roof is
strengthened with
ice pillars. After the
toilets this is probably
the warmest room when
it is full of topers.

  

The church is also real cool. They have had one wedding and several baptisms (using warm water, though)
