THE ENVIRONMENTAL CYCLE

Every year, we borrow the ice from the Torne River to build a new, seasonal Icehotel, which eventually melts and returns back to its origin in the spring.

The basic idea of Icehotel is built on the premise of the environmental cycle, and our relation to the water and the ice is central.
