Ice Hotel (MegaStructures - National Geographic

The Icehotel in Jukkasjorvi, Sweden (85 miles or 136 kilometers) north of the Arctic Circle) is created each winter, melts each May, and is rebuilt when snow falls again. Constructed of 30,000 tons of snow and 1,200 tons of crystal ice, the shimmering hotel features more than 85 rooms, an ice theater, an ice bar, and, of course, an ice wedding chapel. The deluxe rooms are decorated with ice sculptures (no two alike) and guests sleep in thermal sleeping bags atop reindeer skins on beds made from snow and ice.

The documentary reveals how using snow canons,chain-saws, and other devices, a team of architects, builders and sculptors are in a race against time and bitter arctic weather. They are trying to build a hotel only from snow and ice and do it in less than 6 weeks.

An ice hotel seems to me a big fantasy which is really hard to believe. I saw the complete episode on television few weeks back and loved the whole idea of the hotel. I wish to visit there someday.
