How about sleeping in a suite surrounded by polar bears?

Every winter in the heart of Swedish Lapland, something truly magical happens. As the waters of the river Torne freeze over, a glittering, shimmering hotel emerges, sculpted out of the ice itself. Set in pristine wilderness in Swedish Lapland around 200 km north of the Arctic Circle, the Icehotel is a magnificent location for a weekend break or longer holiday with a difference.

You will feel energized after spending a few nights in a suite like this, guarded by the Planets.

The ingenuity of the design and construction has to be seen to be believed and, with an interior temperature kept at a constant -5°C, it really does take your breath away. Each winter the hotel is built to a new design, filled with all manner of amazing ice sculptures and features, only for it to melt back into the river from sometime in April.
