The Icehotel has released details of some of the grand designs that will feature in the 2016 version of the famous frozen structure in Swedish Lapland.

A House of Cards and a White Cathedral provide the setting for two of the suites whilst others will include ‘Lapland Waves’, in which the bed appears to float on an ocean of waves of ice.

More than 40 artists from around the world will be involved in the creation of the hotel, constructed from 5,000 tons of ice and which features 55 rooms, a chapel, bar, hall and gallery.

Simply Sweden is offering a new holiday taking in both the Icehotel – or the permanent Icehotel 365, which opens for the first time on November 1 – and new wilderness cabins, a snowmobile ride away.

The break costs from £1,370, and includes flights, transfers, snowmobile excursions, two nights at the Icehotel and one night at the Wilderness Camp, all breakfasts, one evening meal and warm outer clothing.
