Apparently not all hotels are made of wood and other prefabricated materials -- some are made of ice and snow! In Norwegian Lapland -- two hours north of Oslo by air -- the fabulous Kirkenes Snowhotel features 21 rooms made of snow and ice. Guests are treated to real beds in each suite, surrounded by gorgeous snow sculptures; very warm, Artic designed sleeping bags; and lovely warm lighting to offset the colder room temperatures. When it's time for dinner, meals are served in an adjoining wooden structure, with local foods including fresh salmon, whitefish, and cloudberries. And, if you are in need of warming up, there is a Scandinavian sauna by a nearby lake, just a short walk from your suite. Here are some gorgeous images of the Snowhotel suites to brighten your day. And stay tuned ... next Friday, I'll be bringing you another unique hotel -- just for fun! Happy weekend to all!
