When the first plans for ICEHOTEL® 2019 were revealed in September, we couldn’t wait to see the finished Art Suites. We are pleased to say that thankfully the wait is officially over!

As mentioned in our previous blog, this year is a special one for the ICEHOTEL® as it is celebrating its 30th birthday! 15 teams of artists from around the world have been chosen to help commemorate the special occasion in style, with the 30th anniversary of the ICEHOTEL® and its relationship with the Torne River is a key inspiration behind many of the suites this year and we’re excited to show you the photos from the grand reveal.
