World's 10 Coolest Ice Hotels

With the first flurries of snow come all manner of winter adventures. This season, we're going beyond skiing and snowshoeing to check-in for the night at an ice hotel. These magnificent structures are created entirely from ice and packed snow, and feature truly outstanding meltable art, in the form of snow sculptures and ice carvings. They may be chilly, but what these hotels lack in warmth, they make up for in creative amenities like a gondola that doubles as a sauna, ice-molded cocktail glasses and dinnerware, and reindeer-fueled sled rides. Here's where to check-in for an unforgettable experience.
