Guests can listen to music of various different genres within this crystal-clear atmosphere and before the backdrop of some bizarre ice formations with the genres encompassing classical, improvised jazz, swinging blues and boogie.

International musicians, some of whom play for world-famous orchestras, transform the unique ambience into a concert hall with their bright dreamy sounds, bringing the listeners out in goose
