Summer in Sweden means endless daylight hours, hiking and fishing, but for the IceHotel team, it is also the time for preparing the forthcoming hotel.

With the previous IceHotel having evaporated as it does each spring, this year saw sculptor AnnaSofia Mååg bring the new 2016 IceHotel to life. Responsible for the prior unicorn sculptor displayed in the main hall in 2014, this year will see Mååg carve out the aptly named “Elephant in the Room” – a four meter tall African elephant overlooking the ice framed bed. 

Other sculptors include Viktor Tsarski and Wouter Biegelaar, both of whom are set to create an old country manor drawing room draped in fabric, while father and son duo Rob and Timsam Harding from Spain will create a Mediterranean interpretation of Arctic life.

Berlin based AnnaKatrin Kraus and German Hans Aescht’s plan to create a forest of Gothic-like ice pillars, transforming the suite into an arctic cave, while Sebastian Scheller and Kristina Mockel, also from Berlin will create “The Power of Love” suite, adorned with ice pipes and a love barometer. French landscaping artists Luc Voisin and Mathieu Brison’s 1970’s “Love Capsule” draws inspiration from cultural classics, while Lotta Lampa and Julia Gamborg Nielsen’s fairytale suite also pays homage to the love theme.

An additional two luxury suites will be secured with glass doors and boast en suites bathrooms and private saunas.

IceHotel will reopen on December 11th and costs  £988 per person for a 3-night stay.
