"5 stars aren’t enough. 10 stars aren’t enough! This is an amazing place. Beautiful location, incredible food and wonderful staff - we even got a hug when we left. The cabins are furnished simply, but to a very high standard and with lovely views. And using the river as a plunge pool is fabulous fun. The most perfect place to relax, switch off and eat well!"
"The perfect summer treat. The hotel is gorgeous. The cabins are beautifully designed and decorated. The sauna and steam rooms are great and the food is spectacular. Swimming in the river under the midnight sun was such an amazing experience. The staff are always helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommended."
"I would give it a 10 if I could. Magnificent houses poised like Stonehenge in a pristine snowy environment. The interiors were gorgeous. I could live here year round. The staff were fabulous. Kind, sweet, friendly, helpful etc. The food rivals any fine restaurant in the world. The chef’s tasting menus were creative and delicious. Thank you to Arctic Bath hotel for one of the best holidays ever."
"My wife and I stayed here for three nights and found it really relaxing and beautiful. All the staff were great. A special mention for chef David - cooking only with local Ingredients. I’ve been lucky enough to eat in many top restaurants and his salmon with dill ice-cream or the smoked blueberry and white chocolate dessert are right up there with the best."

"Service was very good. The food were amazing. The rooms were soooo nice. We will definitely return and for more than one night. 😊"
"We really enjoyed the room on the water. We thought the details were great and everything was comfortable. We also appreciated the bathing suits/robes that were provided. Our favorite part (and the purpose for visiting) was the spa itself. We loved it. It was everything we could have hoped for. Overall, we thought the staff was excellent and everything was as you'd expect from a small luxury hotel."
"Loved the lodge with it's high ceiling and the large open spaces, the light and nordic design, the thought behind every detail, the bathroom itself (happy to have enjoyed a bath very early in the morning while the family was still sleeping) and off cause the magnificent view. The staff were so friendly and personal and made us feel most welcome to your place."
"We think everyone in the staff was great. Professional and they all met us with great enthusiasm. We made a lot of good friends this time like your team, the spa and accommodation are great, and we experienced the darkness and cold spa, they will always in our memories! So overall it's been an absolutely brilliant experience."
"This place is magical! The hotel, the spa, the food and the staff.. it was all perfect! We had the luck to see the northern light, witch made this place even more beautiful. We’ll definitely come back."

Experience Swedish Lapland
Winter is on its way and for the northern reaches of Sweden that means snow – lots and lots of snow. While tourists were once scared away by the chilly temperatures, which regularly drop below -15°c, winter is now the region’s peak season.
Floating on Lule river
Experience the midnight sun at Arctic Bath under our warm bright summer nights.
Arctic Bath’s main building has a circular shape which creates a protected in environment, perfect for sun bathing, and offers also a direct access to the river water where you may cool down when the sun is shinning too hard.
Six floating cabins are located by the water edge, offering a private access from the shore via a foot bridge and outside wooden deck. Our Water Cabins have a private access to the fresh cooling water of Lule river.
Our land cabins are tucked away on the shore amongst the birch trees.
