These were designed by co-owner and designer Annkathrin Lundqvist and feature spiral staircases with upstairs bedrooms, dark and moody stone-clad bathrooms and minimalist furniture. The glass walls accompanying the latter offer the most amazing views of the northern sky and the surrounding natural environment.

Your stay includes entry to the spa and unlimited use of the facilities.” This is a place to be silent,  be at one with yourself, and be at peace with the world.”

New for 2020! This amazing floating Spa is situated on the Lule River in Harads, Swedish Lapland. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of this unique experience set within the river's frozen winter ice. A perfect location for chilling out and searching the dark skies at the night for the aurora borealis

The inspiration for the Arctic Bath is drawn from the days when logs were floated down the river  to the mill or port for processing and is a reminder of the historic role the magnificent surrounding forests once played in the livelihoods of the local population.

The main Spa building resembles a wood jam as would have been seen on the river and is constructed in a circular shape around a cold bath formed by the river. The surrounding building includes the Spa rooms with Saunas treatment rooms, hot and cold baths, lounge, bar and restaurant which serves gourmet healthy meals!

 

There are 12 cabins in total in 3 different categories:

Floating cabins: a double room floating on the river connected to the shore by a walkway with its own wooden decking. The room includes queen size bed, pellet heating fire, mini bar, spa bar, en suite shower and toilet and wifi.

Arctic Bath Land room - Situated on the river bank and set on stilts with a private deck.  These split level rooms house a queen bed in the loft and a spacious living room on the ground level. The ensuite bathroom has a  bathtub and shower.

Arctic Bath Land Suite - Larger cabin in the configuration of the room above but with 3 bed in  the loft and  and a Kingsize bed on the ground level.
