200 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle, in the tiny Swedish village of Jukkasjärvi, an incredible attraction is seen by visitors to the areas. And no, it is not solely the fir trees, reindeer or mystic, glassy lakes that make this one of Sweden's most famous attractions.

No, it is the home of the incredible Icehotel

Equal parts hotel and art exhibition made of ice from the nearby river Torne, the hotel is rebuilt annually from fresh ice and snow. This magical place is a great retreat into nature, a unique experience, and a silent place to view the northern lights and appreciate snow clad forests and more. 

Check out the above video to see why legions of curious guests have been making their way to this hotel since 1989.
