An extraordinary experience in Swedish Lapland
Located south of the Arctic Circle, in Swedish Lapland, in Harads on the Lule River, the Arctic Bath hotel is inspired by the wedged logs forming an ice dam on the river.
Opened in 2020, the hotel was designed by architects Bertil Harström and Johan Kaupp. Arctic Bath floats in the summer and freezes in the ice in the winter. Built with local and natural materials and with little impact on the environment, the circular design of the main building creates a protected environment around a deep open-air basin.
In a relaxing and sleek setting, the hotel offers 12 cabins divided into two categories. 6 floating wedge-shaped cabins and 6 other two-story land-based cabins nestled on the shore. They are arranged in a very minimalistic style, with pine and oak, Scandinavian furniture, floorboard heating, and a wood stove. The cabins have huge bay windows facing the sky, allowing you gaze upon the stars, the northern lights, or even the midnight sun, depending on the season.
The main floating building includes various spaces; a spa with natural Swedish plant-based Kerstin Florian products, a cold bath, a hot bath, various saunas, a tailor-made treatment room, a lounge, a store, a bar and a restaurant. The Arctic Bath restaurant offers local cuisine with fresh, raw ingredients.
To travel between the different spaces, you have to take footbridges directly over the water or frozen ice. Oriented towards wellness, the emphasis is put on nutrition, exercise, and peace of mind. Activities like dog sledding, nature trails, outdoor yoga and wellness classes are also available.
It’s definitely a unique experience offering stunning contrasts amidst the breath-taking wilderness combined with inspiring and unique design.
