After witnessing the popularity of Treehotel in Swedish Lapland, its design team revealed plans to create floating cold baths and vacation cabins on the Lule River as next big tourist destination for travelers coming to the Arctic region of Sweden.
Designed by architects Bertil Harström and Johan Kaupp in collaboration with travel agency Off the Map Travel, the Arctic bath hotel will be a year-round getaway as it will float over the Lule River during summer and freeze into a place in winters. Currently, the project is in its last stages of construction and pretty soon it will be open for services.
The floating Arctic spa will feature cold baths, different water activities, saunas, massage studio, shops and a restaurant. There will be six wooden cabins for guests so that after having a dip in the refreshing four degrees water, they can jump directly to the frozen or floating cabins. As of the cabins, they have big windows and a skylight to gaze Northern Lights from inside.
The open center of the central bath is designed for sunbathing, ice-bathing star-gazing and for those who wish to experience the Northern Lights. It will be situated downstream from the bridges of Bodtraskfors which is an ideal spot to experience Northern Lights. Once its construction is complete, guests will be able to book the new floating bath hotel. It will be a must-go destination for people tired of warm temperature.
UPDATE: Good news has just come in as you can now make pre-bookings for the Floating Arctic Hotel right away. Yes, the floating spa hotel has announced its plans to commence services in February 2020 and pre-booking up till February 2021.
The room starts from £815 and the hotel’s three-day itinerary plan at £2,595 per person offers a luxurious stay in a floating cabin, daily breakfast meal, a nightly five-course dinner, a guided Northern Lights hunt, and free spa access.
