ICEHOTEL Sweden soon also with midnightsun
Icehotel Sweden reveals plans for a permanent sub-zero ice experience – including bar, art gallery and suites for overnight stays – available 365 days of the year. In Jukkasjärvi, 200 km north of the Arctic Circle, the midnight sun glows for 100 days and nights without setting.
The team behind the hotel announce plans to create a sustainable addition to the iconic icehotel.Using the near constant daylight that the region above the Arctic Circle is blessed with through the warmer months of the year, the building is planned to run solely on solar power during the summer months.
In winter, the new addition will form part of the classic ICEHOTEL, which is about three times its size. “This ground-breaking initiative lets our guests decide whether they want to combine ICEHOTEL with dog sledding and northern lights, or hiking under the midnight sun. It just lets us meet the desires of our clients in a way whole new way, says ICEHOTEL founder Yngve Bergqvist.”
Icehotel Sweden has solar power experts on board
The idea to create an ice experience available year-round is not new – it’s been brewing in the company for years, but it’s not until recently that technologal advancements in sustainable energy renders it achieveable.
The new ice experience is projected to open in December 2016, granted the project finds investors to join the partnership.
