ICE HOTEL

Jarius's insight:

The Ice hotel in Lapland is situated in the      Swedish village of Jukkasjärvi which is 200km inside the Arctic Circle. The      ice hotel was first built as an igloo in 1990 to provide a location for      Jannot Dent, a French artist, to stage an art exhibition. After the      exhibition some foreign visitors armed with reindeer pelts decided to stay      the night in the igloo and the concept of the ice hotel was born. The hotel      is constructed every year by carving ice blocks taken from the Torne River
     which resides close to the ice hotel and it opens to the first guests
     around the 10th of December. Staying at the ice hotel is a truly magical      experience with beautifully carved suites and amazing architecture      prevalent throughout.       The northern European country of Finland (located in the region      known as Scandinavia) has an area of 338,145 square kilometers (130,558      square miles). It is slightly smaller than the state of Montana. About      one-third of the country lies above the Arctic Circle. Finland borders on      Russia, Sweden, and Norway, with a total land boundary of 2,628 kilometers
     (1,629 miles) and a coastline of about 1,126 kilometers (694 miles,
     excluding islands and coastal indentations).
