About Ice Hotel, Sweden
In the year 1989, some people were attending the ice and snow sculpture art course in the small village of Jukkasjarvi. A snow house was being created as the venue for the art course. There were more students and scarce accommodation facilities. The people were then accommodated in the snow house with sleeping bags and toilet trip management. This is how the ice hotel came into being.
