Gotham on Ice - Ice Hotel, Jukkasjarvi, Sweden

Feb 17th 2010

After picking up the hire car our first stop was 10km down the road at Jukkasjarvi to visit the world famous Ice Hotel.

It was truely amazing and the room, especially the Art Rooms, were so intricately carved. My favourite room was Gotham on Ice (because I like architecture and liked the architectural carving rather than being a fan of Batman!). Average cost of a room seems to be around ?300 a night but you aren't expected to sleep as it's too cold.

We stopped for a drink (non-alcholic costed ?5 each) at the Absolut sponsored Ice Bar. The drink came in an ice glass and we chose 4 different colours (although the general consensus was that the red one wasn't too nice, and the blue one tasted too much of ice pops or WKD Blue sans alcohol).

After visiting the hotel and having a drink in the Absolut bar we went to the Ice Church. That was really pretty. Some people in our hotel were getting married there later in the week. Quick check on the internet found that they were paying over ?2k for the ceremony, plus the extra costs of the guests. Must've been a chilly wedding! Hope she got a thermal dress. We were cold in coats, jumpers and thermal tops wandering about the hotel!

After the Ice Hotel, bar and church we needed warming up so headed inside to the Ice Hotel cafe. Modern, wooden building serves as the booking area, restaurant, inside bar etc. Had a lovely hot chocolate to warm us up.

We had bought lunch at the ICA supermarket so we made sandwiches as we drove to our next destination at Abisko National Park.

Our hotel room. This picture doesn't actually give an accurate idea of the size of the room...I was standing right in the doorway to take it. There was a small washstand, TV, fireplace, and wardrobe just off to the right, but I didn't post the picture of that side of room due to the fact Rachel's damp underwear was hung up to dry there.

Note the teakettle -- very important for an English hotel room.

Yes, that is an aardvark is at the lower left. Rachel bought her in Edinburgh, and asked "What do you name an aardvark?"

I answered, "There's only one name for an aardvark."

Ethel, of course. If you don't get that, you haven't seen enough Monty Python.

It was a cosy little place. I was quite happy there.

Goodbye, hotel room. Goodbye, London.
