The new floating open air cold bath, inspired by the success of Treehouse hotel is planned to be situated downstream from the bridges of Bodstrackfors on Lule River. With the river frozen in wintertime and summertime free-floating, this lodge will be a year-round attraction. Arctic Bath is a sister retreat to the country’s Treehouse hotel.
The Northern Lights may be checked in lots of cool ways, but they might not come any cooler than the experience to be offered by this new floating hotel in the Swedish Lapland. This upcoming resort, literary floating on a river, couldn’t be further from normal life.
Activities there will include cold baths, different water activities, several saunas and spa treatments. The hotel houses four different saunas and a spa treatment room, along with six hotel rooms, a shop, bar and a restaurant. This logjam-inspired floating lodge honors the jogged piles of timber that once clogged up the river and offers visitors a refreshing! dip in an ice-cold bath in its center. The Lule River stretches 280 miles through northern Sweden and was once an important thoroughfare for moving timber.

Now it will be home to an eye-catching floating hotel that pays tribute to this heritage, cutting a spooky, serrated figure atop the waterway’s surface.
The area is a glacial haven of snow-tipped forests, world-class fishing, amazing wildlife and the Northern Lights.
Inspired by the wild, stunning Swedish surroundings, owners Britta Jonsson Lindvall and Kent Lindvall will offer a mix of luxury and nature. Swedish architects, Bertil Harström and Johan Kauppi are responsible for architecture and design.
The developers are billing it as an exclusive hotel suitable for small conferences, group events and private parties.
