Before I bid Winter a final adieu, I thought I should bring you some awe-inspiring photos of a unique hotel, bar, restaurant, and art gallery in Finland. The Lainio Snow Village is located in the smal town of Lainio in the western part of Finnish Lapland, about 150 km north of Lapland's capital Rovaniemi and the Arctic Circle, and opens on December 1st every year. Consisting of an Ice Bar, a Snow Hotel, a restaurant, and an art gallery, the space is made of snow and ice, and features colorfully lighted ice sculptures and snow sculptures. There are also amusements for kids as well, with an ice maze and snow slide.
If you're daring, you can rent one of the 20 double igloo rooms at The Snow Hotel, or one of six ice suites. If you get chilly, you can descend to the subterranean floor where there's a sauna, showers and bathrooms, and a large room with a fireplace. I'd love to have an ice adventure by staying over at the Snow Hotel; would you?
