When the plans for this winter's ICEHOTEL® were revealed in September, we couldn’t wait to see the finished Art Suites. The good news is that the wait is finally over!

As we explained in our last blog about the ICEHOTEL®, this year is a special one for Sweden's world-famous hotel as it is celebrating its 30th birthday! To help commemorate the special occasion in style, 15 teams of artists from around the world were chosen, with the 30th anniversary of the ICEHOTEL® and its relationship with the Torne River proving to be a key inspiration behind many of the art suites this year. After weeks of being carved out of snow and ice we’re excited to show you the photos from the grand reveal of ICEHOTEL® 30!
