If you are not ready to embrace summer just yet and want a cold fresh getaway, we present you the Amazing Ice Hotel, in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden.

Named IceHotel, the building is made entirely out of ice, including the reception and even the mattresses. What a way to redefine coolness in a whole different perspective!

Covering 59,200 square feet, the hotel has a restaurant, a cafe, and a bar where you can drink vodka from glasses made of ice. Extra activities such as dog-sledding or reindeer-sledding excursions, horseback riding, ice sculpting and snowmobile driving are included.

Most guests choose to spend just one night “on ice”, usually spending the rest of their holiday in traditional accommodations.
