Ice Hotel – Tron Legacy Inspired Suite

For twenty-one seasons now the ICEHOTEL located in Lapland, Sweden, has been built from scratch out of only ice and snow. Artists submit applications from all over the world to participate in building and creating this sculptured art habitat, which is summarily spread to the elements like a Tibetan mandala come spring.

This season, the ICEHOTEL is getting quite a bit of publicity from their Tron: Legacy inspired suite, and we’ll just let the pictures do the talking…

Photos are from the designer’s & architect’s blog documenting the building process.

So, how does this all get created in the first place? Here’s an excerpt from the site that might help explain better:

“As soon as winter begins, a team of snow builders, architects, designers and artists from all over the world gather in the little town of Jukkasjärvi far north of the Arctic Circle. Under the direction of the ICEHOTEL Art & Design Group, they create each year’s version of ICEHOTEL.

The building process starts in mid-November when the snow guns start humming and large clouds of snow start to drift along the Torne River.

The snow is sprayed on huge steel forms and allowed to freeze. After a couple of days, the forms are removed, leaving a maze of free-standing corridors of snow.

In the corridors, dividing walls are built in order to create rooms and suites. Ice blocks, harvested at springtime from Torne River, are now being transported into the hotel where selected artists from all over the world start creating the art and design of the persihable material.”

While the ICEHOTEL offers all-season accommodation, it’s the seasonally-sculpted transitory hotel that has brought it the most notoriety. In fact, the hotel recommends that you only spend a night or two in the cold caverns, and relax in their indoor suites for the remaining duration of your stay.

If you decide to travel north to the Swedish Lapland, you can fly roundtrip direct from London, and make sure that you’re ready to brave the coldest cold you’ve ever known. Although, the temperatures inside the ICEHOTEL’s igloo rooms hover around -4 C, balmy compared to the temperatures outside in the Arctic Winter.
