A cutting-edge design icon floating on the Lule River, Arctic Bath is all about health, wellness, and the beauty of the Swedish countryside. Designed by Bertil Harström – the architect behind the equally spectacular Treehotel – Arctic Bath is a feat of engineering, a quirky bird's nest suspended in the river, complete with back-to-nature aesthetic and ethos. A stay in one of the hotel's twelve cabins means a chance to relax, indulge in holistic spa treatments and explore the surrounding landscapes – perhaps even glimpsing the elusive Northern Lights.

In more detail

Away from the central hotel, twelve cabins – six in the water and six on land – showcase different aspects of classic Swedish style. The compact floating water cabins are the epitome of minimalism, all blonde wood and muted colour palettes. The land suites are a touch more luxurious, with layers of blankets and furs draped across Scandi furniture, spacious loft areas, and floor-to-ceiling windows designed to bring the outside in. In winter, you'll look out onto a veritable wonderland of ice and snow, while in summer, you'll gaze across verdant green countryside and the peaceful river's flow.

Back in the central nest, spa treatment rooms, outdoor hot tubs and the hotel's signature restaurant surround an icy plunge pool at the centre – you can take a dip even in the depths of winter. And, this being a wellness retreat, the food served at the aforementioned restaurant champions fresh, organic ingredients and local produce, expertly presented by a team of talented chefs. After days spent hiking, husky-sledding, snowmobiling or simply soaking in the hot tub, it's certainly welcome. In short, this hotel is the ideal place to escape the stresses of everyday life and discover the magic of Swedish Lapland, in all seasons.
