6 Bucket List-Worthy Ice Hotels Around The World

Spending the night in an ice hotel is one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences we can't wait to check off our bucket lists. While they are not exactly known for being comfortable — how cozy can an ice-carved bed be? — these man-made wonders are just incredible to behold. The construction alone requires muscle power, snow ploughs, and tons of ice — a very respectable feat considering the fact that these hotels have to be built from scratch every year. And, we haven't even started on the ice sculptures yet.
Most of these establishments open their doors in January and remain in operation through April. Click ahead for the most stunning ice hotels from around the world that are so Instagrammable, they might just be worth the frostbite.
