Accommodations inside the Icehotel are, well ... chilly. Regardless of the temperature outside, the air in the Icehotel is always between 17 and 23 degrees Fahrenheit. Bedrooms have blocks of ice as beds, covered with fur, skin, hides and sleeping bags.

Apart from its 80 beds the Alta Igloo Hotel houses suites, an ice gallery, an ice bar, an ice chapel and several lounges. Sculpture work also is present here -- hulking ice sculptures that appear as stone until you touch them and they melt in your hand.

Cracked Light Woman Sculpture

Another photo of this sculpture - I *love* love love LOVE this sculpture. If I could tattoo *this* on me and make it look this beautiful, I would.

The Icehotel in the village of Jukkasjärvi, about 17 kilometres from Kiruna, in northern Sweden, was the world's first ice hotel. After its first opening in 1990, the hotel has been erected each year from December to April. The hotel, (including the chairs and beds), is constructed from snow and ice blocks taken from the nearby Torne River. The structure remains below freezing, around 23 °F (−5 °C)
