Where the Drinks are Cold and the Seats are Colder

With seats, artwork, glasses and even plates made out of ice, the Icebar in Oslo is incredibly well named. For anyone visiting the Norwegian city, this is one of those locations that you must visit as it's an experience as well as a great place to socialize. 

It is all about water it seems. Norway has a total of more than 80,000km of coast and 2.5 million Norwegians gaped at the ‘Hurtigruten’ TV programme, broadcasting 135 hours of non-stop coastline.

Nevertheless, that is not enough. The third Icebar by Icehotel celebrates its third year after opening in Oslo in 2009, bringing ice from Sweden. Transporting 60 tons of ice to Oslo seems like a crazy idea.

This is ice which calved in northern Norway, flowed down the Torne River in Lapland 200km north of the Arctic Circle, and is now crafted by specialized and skilled ice artists in the capital.
