Top Ice Hotels Worldwide – How to Vacation Differently This Winter

The holidays may be behind us, but winter has just begun. If you’re looking for vacation ideas then be sure to consider these ice hotels and all of their offerings before booking your next vacation.


Most of these resorts made of ice are only open during the winter months and are re-sculpted each year. All but a few offer ice-sculpted suites that are more like works of art than a hotel room. Depending on where you stay, they may provide all of the accommodations of a resort, including bars, restaurants, spas, saunas and extra curricular activities. Skiing, snowboarding, northern lights and ice sculpting classes may be on the docket. Be sure to check into these hotels’ amenities before deciding on which one you might visit.
