World's Most Unusual Hotel?

This week in Nature Stories, The Nature Conservancy's podcast, travel to Sweden for a stay in what may be the world's most unusual hotel--a hotel constructed entirely of ice. Each year, this incredible structure is rebuilt using 3000 tons of snow and ice. Ice sculptures, an ice church and a domed bar serving vodka in ice glasses are just a few of the "amenities" in this engineering marvel.

The Nature Stories podcast explores our many ways of relating to the natural world. In this episode, correspondent William S. Hammack explores how from the icy climate of the Arctic comes art, grandeur and some very frigid sleeping quarters.
