Carved into the snowy, white Norwegian landscape, the Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel is one of the world’s most unique and beautiful hotels. Constructed each fall almost entirely of ice and snow, this 30-room igloo hotel opens its doors to the public each January, housing guests until it melts away in the summer.

Coolest Hotel #2: Montaña Mágica Lodge

The Montaña Mágica Lodge is one of the coolest hotels in Chile. Shaped like an anthill with water spewing daily from the top, this manmade lodge helps visitors become part of the surrounding forest. The 13-room abode is accessible only by a rope bridge, and offers a number of amenities, including a golf course, bar, sauna and hot tubs carved from ancient tree trunks.
