Ice Church - The ICEHOTEL

This is the Ice Church of the original ICE HOTEL in Jukkasjärvi Sweden. Both hotel and church are made entire of snow and ice cut from frozen Trone river.

 

The Ice Church hosts wedding ceremonies for couples all around the world (in -5 c temperature.) The Ice Church exists between Dec 23rnd to the end of April.

 

When we stayed in one of the Art Suites, we saw a couple get married. She was in a traditional white wedding gown and he was in a suit. Very brave. We were in our ski attires with base layers and not cold at all. I did see them run off inside a warm cabin after the photo session. LOL.
