After traveling between Paris, Copenhagen, Stockholm and many other cities, Riksbyggen’s Solar Egg is back in Kiruna.
On the brink of Torne River, it shines like a golden beacon, allowing for visitors to Icehotel Sweden in Jukkasjärvi to enjoy a sauna. 

With the Solar Egg reflecting the mountains, the majestic landscape, stars and twilight – the site is truly spectacular.

Each spring, Icehotel Sweden brings fresh ice for next year’s hotel rooms and lets designers and artists design the interiors with ice, offering visitors a chance to sleep surrounded by snow and ice art with the help of solar energy.

About Riksbyggen’s Solar Egg by Bigert & Bergström
The artist-duo Mats Bigert and Lars Bergström has had a variety of major exhibitions in Europe, China and the USA.
Solar Egg, which is 5×4 meters high, has a shell of gold-plated stainless steel that reflects the city and surrounding nature. The self-supporting shell consists of 69 gold plates that are removable, making the construction mobile. Inside, the egg is heated by a wood-fired burner.
