The Hotel of Ice in Cîrţişoara, Romania is made from ice blocks that come from the nearby Balea Lake. Here you will sleep on ice beds with furs, sheets, and a sleeping bag. Your meals at the restaurant will be served on ice plates, at an ice table, while you sit on ice chairs.
For the first time, Icehotel Jukkasjärvi has created another hotel, Icehotel 365. This new hotel will be open all year round with a solar-panel cooling system to keep the hotel cool (and solid) during the summer. You can stay at the classic Icehotel that is rebuilt yearly or venture out to the newest hotel addition.

Norway’s Kirkenes Snowhotel has 24 rooms, each with a different arctic theme. Eat at the Gabba Restaurant, go king crab fishing, or drive a snowmobile around the area. Regardless of what you decide to do during your stay, it’ll be a beautiful and exciting place to be.
Within the SnowCastle are the SnowHotel rooms. Unlike some of the other ice and snow hotels, the rooms here are decoratively and beautifully illuminated. You’ll sleep on an ice bed with a sleeping bag, fleece sheets, and a lambskin cover.
