ICEHOTEL – day nineteen

And so the last day came… at last! Time to make all final adjustments, clean out all trash snow, ice, tools and everything else that was not supposed to be in there. And fix the bed! We like to be very accurate when we do things, so when it was time to put the wooden […]

Ok, so we haven´t been that good at updating the blog. But we will try to improve! A lot of things is going on, both in the suite and outside. Today, the biggest challenge was to get our ufo off the ground and up on the beam of ice. This was actually probably the biggest […]

ICEHOTEL – day ten

This has been a really intense weekend, with a lot of work and a lot of parties. Our ufo has been spinning, the chisels has been carving, and the lathe worked really well. Without actually ever having seen a ufo, I think this is as close to a real one we can come with snow […]

Finally we have started with some ice sculpting! This day we spent putting up the last pieces of the ice beam that will be the first thing that people will see when they enter the suite. We had our worries, since each of the blocks weigh around 3-400 kilos… not something you just throw up […]

ICEHOTEL – day seven

Another day of hard work passed in our suite. We focused on the walls today, and the first ufo made its way in. It is now hovering over the place where we will eventually put the bed. We also proceeded with our impression of the Aurora Borealis, the pattern that reaches from one wall to […]

ICEHOTEL – day six

After resting the whole Sunday, we were back working with full speed ahead yesterday. Since it´s too cloudy and snowy to see any nothern lights, we stayed in the suite and got a lot of work done, mostly on the walls. It was a really cold day, one of those days when it actually feels […]

We thought that we would post our day by day progress here on the blog, in the shape of short timelapse videos amongst other pictures and […]
