when we touched down in kiruna the pilot said is was -20, it was very scary getting off the plane but it turned out to only be about -16! we caught the bus into kiruna town centre, the bus couldn't go all the way because there was too much snow. we eventually found our hostel, dumped our bags and headed for the tourist office. got slightly distracted by some large blocks of ice then decided to go out to the ice hotel for the last tour of the day. it was amazing. firstly cause it was freezing! and there was really cool lighting inside and the managed to get eletrical wiring through the ice! there were 21 unique designer suites, some less exciting rooms, a chapel and a bar, all made of ice. the guests run out from the warm hotel in their sleeping bags, sleep on top of reigndeer skins then run back inside in the morning! i was actually glad i wasn't staying there, it seemed really unpleasent! we stayed for a drink in the ice bar, drank out of ice glasses, then caught the bus back to our warm hostel!
