Every year when the winter comes, the pristine waters the meandering of Torne River slow down and freeze into ice. On one chilly day in 1989, the first ever Ice hotel was hand-sculpted out of these massive ice blocks harvested from this very river running alongside.

Once upon a time in a land far, far away, where snow was slowly falling to the ground and covering everything like a white blanket, the Grand Master Elf, Pippuri (Pepper), was gazing upon the Northern Sky and hoping it would provide a solution to his problem.

Every year Santa Claus was receiving more and more letters and according to the Scout Elves, the amount of chimneys and stockings around the world seemed to be growing too. According to his calculations, though all the elves were sharp minded and very skilled, they would not be able to handle the number of tasks before Christmas without the extra help.
