Ice Hotel

How do you build the world’s largest snow and ice structure in the middle of a warm spell? With great difficulty! The construction of Sweden’s world famous ICEHOTEL is always a challenge because anything can go wrong… and often it does. You’d think that builders Ake Larrson and Arne Bergh could rely on cold weather 200 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle. But they’re hit by a warm spell two weeks into their six week construction schedule. Megabuilders is on hand as Larrson and Bergh struggle against the elements to build their hotel out of 3,000 tonnes of ice and 30-thousand cubic metres of snow.
