The team behind Sweden’s world-famous Treehotel is back with plans to launch a new hotel and spa that floats along the Lule River in summer and freezes into the ice during winter—all in a prime spot to experience the Northern Lights. This is not a joke: The next-level property, brought to you by Arctic Bath AB and Off the Map Travel, is slated to open this fall.
A stay at the six-room Arctic Bath Hotel and Spa in Harads, Swedish Lapland, will include a luxurious experience in a design-forward spa inspired by floating timber. The sleek Arctic Bath will house one spa treatment room, four saunas, a hot bath, an outdoor cold bath, plus outside and inside showers.
“The circular shape of [the] spa and Arctic Bath creates a haven to relax and soak up the local Arctic environment,” Jonny Cooper, Arctic travel expert and founder of Off the Map Travel, said in a statement. “You can experience the spa bath and stay overnight in a room that will float or be frozen into the ice, depending on the season. This will be a one-of-a-kind Arctic experience.”
Guests will be able to book to stay at the new floating hotel six months in advance of its opening day (which is slated for a still-undetermined fall 2018 date), so keep a close eye on this space.
