This half a century old architectural masterpiece is made of snow and ice. Supplies for the construction are taken from Torne River nearby.

Each spring however, the ice melts, so the rooms are different every year. The walls, furniture and decoration in any room is never the same the next year.

Guests are provided with thermal underwear, sleeping bags and hats. The hotel is designed such that inside is never cooler 19.4 degrees, no matter how cold it is outside.

5. Montana Magica Lodge, Neltume, Chile:

This  fascinating conical structure blends so well with its surroundings that it could be easily mistaken for part of the forest but for the window panes.

This hotel has no regular entrance, rather, guests have to cross a hanging bridge to get to the hotel where bathtubs are made out of logs of wood.
