Due to open in 2020 The Arctic Bath Hotel in Harads, Swedish Lapland is a unique concept of a floating hotel, which will be surrounded by a frozen river in winter. The hotel will have a strong focus on wellness offering detoxifying spa treatments.

Due to be open year-round, the Arctic Bath Hotel will offer different experiences for summer and winter stays. During the summer months, the intuitive design of the hotel will float on water, a design inspired by a block of floating timber in the river, a traditional mode of transport to move logs downstream. During the winter months, as the river freezes, guests will be surrounded by the frozen water, creating a mesmerising ice sculpture.

The central feature of the hotel will be an open-air cold bath - offering a refreshing antidote after experiencing the different saunas or hot bath. Alongside the saunas you'll find treatments rooms, a lounge area, bar and restaurant. For treatments, guests will be offered a range of therapies including massages and cleansing and detox therapies.

This boutique hotel will have just 12 rooms- 6 floating cabins and 6 cabins on the shoreline, it is also possible to book the whole hotel for an exclusive stay. Each room features a private terrace, a great spot to enjoy the midnight sun in summer, the Northern Lights between August and April or simply to enjoy the pure, clean, detoxing air that Swedish Lapland offers.
