Be the first in line to experience this one-of-a-kind glacial haven

Does floating in the Arctic while enjoying a personal sauna time sound like a plan? Then we’ve got some good news for you! Sweden’s much-anticipated, Arctic Bath Hotel and Spa at the Lule River has opened the doors after a long-long waiting period and is now finally accepting reservations. This out-of-this-world accommodation, frozen into a river in northern Sweden can be your ultimate escape to catch the aurora borealis – inspired by the timber floating era it recalls how felled trees were transported downriver for processing; interestingly, the buildings of the hotel are touted to float in summer and freeze in winters.

Not just the hotel but the astonishing surroundings will also make you skip a heartbeat for all the picturesque pleasures of glacial haven with snow-tipped forests, amazing wildlife, and of course the Northern Lights. Isn’t it mesmerizing? It had to! After all, the masterminds behind the inception of this magical place are the renowned Swedish architects, Bertil Harström and Johan Kauppi.

Another awestrucking character of this quirky circular hotel is its centre which is reminiscent of a bird’s nest, where you can sunbathe for hours. Even though all rooms include Wi-Fi access, we are sure you will rarely need to plug into it.
