I've been doing a lot of travel the past two days to go to the Ice Hotel: from Malmö-Stockholm-Kiruna-Jukkasjärvi yesterday and back again today. I'm finally back "home" at Malmö base camp!
But it was totally worth it - it was an amazing experience.
The Ice Hotel looks great but it also tastes great!
And after such a lovely introduction to the Ice Hotel, I snuggled up in a nice warm bed - the cold accommodation was not available for the time frame I went up, but to be honest I prefer to be warm and not fall asleep shivering in minus five degree weather to the smell of reindeer skins.
Speaking of reindeer, yep, I ate reindeer along with bunny, fish eggs, and arctic char. The reindeer was tasty...as someone said on my Facebook page, ew, but at least I didn't eat Santa! But I totally would have if he'd been on the Ice Hotel menu; guaranteed they would have done something nice with him! I did feel a little guilty about eating the reindeer since I'd just come back from the Sami Museum and Reindeer Camp just up the road where I met and fed two lovely male reindeer...more about that in another post.
In the meantime, you can see a few Ice Hotel photos here. I'll post more photos to this set when I have a bit more time.
