A few weeks ago the fabulous Icehotel invited us to their ice harvest festival. When their season moving to an end they harvest the ice in the river. The ice will be used in next years hotel. The harvest is a day on the ice with happenings, kites, barbecue, dogsleds, snow mobiles and this year, Fat bikes. Icehotel is an international success with 50 000 visitors each season. Im very proud to get the invitation. I gathered a few fat bike friends and we headed up to Jukkasjärvi just outside Kiruna.
We had no idea what to expect. Turns out the fat bikes were very popular (no surprise really) and a lot of people tried our bikes with big smiles as result. It´s the classic fat bike effect.
Here a little film from the trip.
After a few hours of fat bike demo we got a guided tour in the hotel. 68 rooms all different made by various artists. Different every year. The hotel doesn’t look like more the an big igloo from the outside. But once you get inside its just stunning…
The main hall
All rooms are different form each other
Awesome snow ornaments on the walls
Yes, they have a bar
I really hope the we can come back and help out with more cycling/fat bike related adventures next year.
Thanks for having us.
