And no, you're not dreaming, this hotel is actually carved out of a block of ice! Located in Swedish Lapland, it offers uniquely designed rooms with ice statues, and melts in the spring when the weather warms up. But don't panic - there are also traditional 'warm' rooms and chalets.
Santa's Igloos Arctic Circle
The igloos of Rovaniemi are a must in Lapland hotels and are located right in the Arctic Circle. Just a stone's throw from Santa's village, they allow you to watch the aurora from the comfort of your bed.
Lapland Hotels Luostotunturi & Amethyst Spa
You'll find this hotel in Luosto, Finland. More traditional than the former, it offers rustic and comfortable accommodation to relax in after a day in the snow, but its highlight is undoubtedly its spa, with its amethyst-encrusted ceiling.
Arctic Treehouse Hotel
Minimalism, comfort and design are the watchwords of this hotel. The Arctic Treehouse also offers a panoramic restaurant and various experiences.

Good news for tree house enthusiasts: you'll find some great ones in Harads, Sweden. These unique accommodations are all different: from flying saucer-shaped huts to bird's nests!
