A snow hotel re-opened its icy doors in Kirkenes, Norway.
The annual event sees guests wrapped up warm in their glistening rooms and each year the hotel is made with a new theme.

It's fantastic, it's so creative. The artistic work is beautiful. It's lovely - it's completely unique and so different.
This year the theme is trolls. Inside the hotel walls Chinese artists have carved troll related art in the ice and snow structure.
– Alan Canon, Guest at the Snow Hotel
It's like a dream with all the scenery, it's like a cartoon.
The Christmas and New Year weekends are high season for this particular hotel. It is open for sightseers to have a tour and appreciate the chilly bar as well as for cold sleepovers for the more adventurous.
