Every year, 200km north of the the Arctic Circle, Sweden's ICEHOTEL rises anew, snow and ice forming its main building blocks. In addition to regular rooms, this year also features also 19 "art suites" designed by artists from around the world, including Dutch designer Wouter Biegelaar and stylist Marjolein Vonk. Perhaps the highlight of the hotel, which was built for the first time in 1989, is a Church of snow, which was designed by the Dutch duo Edith van der Wetering and Wilfred Stijger. 

The cheapest room costs just over €250 per night. Check out more pictures from the ICEHOTEL below:
