Arctic Bath Hotel & Coldbath - Swedish Lapland

Arctic Bath a new international floating hotel and coldbath in Harads, Swedish Lapland. Close to nature, the buildings are inspired by the timber floating era when the river was used for transporting timber. Sometimes the logs got jammed in the rapids and caused problems. Such log jam is the inspiration to our buildings. Arctic Bath, floating on Luleriver, a year round hotel, summertime free-floating and wintertime frozen into the ice on Luleriver.

Arctic Bath has a circular shape which creates a protected environment. The center of the bath is great for both sunbathing and winter bathing, it is an open air coldbath. The center pool will be kept free from ice and the chilly plunges will be a great combo to the warm saunas. Our Spa treatments will offer bespoke treatments inspired by the local nature and old traditions with focus on wellness.

Plans are to open december 2019..
