THE famous Icehotel has reopened this year – and has 12 brand new rooms.
The Icehotel 33, in Lapland, is celebrating its 33rd anniversary, being the original Ice Hotel.
Having opened to guests last week, new images reveal the first look inside the rebuilt winter hotel.
The hotel is remade every year using snow and ice from the Torne River in Sweden, which opens every winter but melts back down by spring.
Taking six weeks to build, it stays at a chilly -5C.
Inside the hotel are twelve suites, including a deluxe suite in Icehotel 365 which remains open all year round.
