A brand new hotel that gives you a one-of-a kind Arctic experience has taken shape in the Harads region of Sweden, a locality that is approximately at a distance of 50 kilometers South of Arctic circle. This spa built over river Lure will be frozen in place into the ice during the winter months and gently floats during summer.
This Arctic bath hotel is now taking reservations for travelers who intend to visit this region in 2020-21. Guests will be made to stay in six individual 25-square meter long cabins equipped with wood-burning fireplaces, decorated in Swedish-minimalist style. The hotel will have a capacity of only 12 guests. This construction is a reminder of timber float ways in northern Sweden in the 19th century.
The main highlight of this hotel is its spa that offers a variety of wellness treatments. At the center of the circular shaped main building which resembles a cluster of timber floating in water, will be an open-air bath where the water will be maintained at a 39 degree Fahrenheit temperature. Here, guests can take a cold shower plunge in summer and a hot sauna in winter which is in an arctic tradition. In addition to the cold, open-air bath, the main building houses one spa treatment room, four saunas, a hot bath, outdoor and indoor showers and two dressing rooms. In winters this place is ideal to spot the vibrant Northern lights.
