The Hotel Arctic Bath in Swedish Lapland is surrounded by woodland, icy waters and a glowing sun.
Besides, in the middle of the floating structure is designed to look like a cluster of logs on the river to pay homage to the importance of forests in the country’s development and a giant ice bath lay at its center with saunas and other wellness facilities around it.
The cabins range from a five-bed land cabin to a two-person suite to double-room floating cabins and the rooms on the water are connected to the shore by floating walkaways.
They free-float in the summers and sit on the frozen Lule River in the winters. Nature is incorporated into the cabins through the use of wood, stone, and leather to encourage guests to “immerse themselves in the elements while leaving a minimal environmental footprint behind,” according to the hotel’s website.
If the idea of focusing on wellness while surrounded by the beauty of nature doesn’t sound like enough to entice you, the hotel also offers a ton of activities to embrace while you’re there. From husky sled rides to village visits, you can explore arctic nature away from the hotel’s main area.
