Main Hall, Ice Hotel, Jukkasjarvi, Sweden. Each year, since 1990, artists from all over the world gather in Jukkasjarvi, in Northern Sweden to create a new artistic design for the Ice Hotel from the waters of the Torne River. The hotel, catering for more than 120 guests, is open during the winter months; it melts back into the river each spring.

Location: Jukkasjarvi, Sweden
