Ice restaurant, Lapland
Made entirely of ice and rebuilt every year, the snow castle in Kemi, northern Finland, is a haunting, beautiful spot. Eerie glowing lanterns cast shadows on the glittering walls, and the -5C temperature heightens your tastebuds, enhancing morsels of warm food served in foil and searing shots of vodka. You won't need a fish slice to extricate frozen bums from carved ice stools - they are draped in reindeer skins.
