Who wouldn’t love to be lulled to sleep by a sweet, gentle, rocking?

It’s how our parents got us to settle down way back when, so it stands to reason it would work just as well now.

The Arctic Bath and Spa in Sweden offers the ultimate getaway for those looking to destress and unwind while being gently rocked into a relaxed state.

Every season has something different to offer, from experiencing stunning views of the northern lights in the winter to indulging in a midnight swim under the sun in the summer.

Located on the Lule River, the Arctic Bath is just downstream from the bridges of Bodträskfors, and it alternates between floating and being frozen depending on the season.

One of the most unique and appealing features is the floating sauna. 

According to the company¬†website, “Arctic Bath is a unique hotel and spa experience that welcomes guests to immerse themselves in the elements while leaving a minimal environmental footprint behind.”¬†

The hotel and spa pride itself on the cohesiveness between the surrounding nature and the architecture of its structures, which is primarily¬†influenced by¬†the timber floating era of the Lule River. “Located just south of the arctic circle, this natural spa retreat is a reminder of the importance of forests for the entire country’s development.”

The construction of the main circular building, which floats on the river, emulates logs getting caught in rapids, an occurrence that was far from uncommon for those transporting lumber.

The region is rich in history, with artifacts along the Lule River suggesting settlements dating as far back as the Stone Age. 

It is still considered Sweden’s most profitable river, and Arctic Bath is proud to maintain the tradition, reminding residents and visitors of the crucial role of water both in their region as well as the entire country, as well as the legacy of lumber.¬†

Guests have the option of staying in either a land or water room.

Each room is constructed from sustainable, natural materials including stone, wood, leather, and beautiful textiles to form, “your perfect hide-away under the northern skies.”

Water cabins are 24 square-metres and are connected to the shore via a floating walkway. They come fully equipped with a double bed, private bathroom, air conditioning, minibar, spa bar, heated floors, and a pellets stove, as well as Wifi.

The 57.5 square-metre deck provides an ideal location for sunbathing in the summer, meditation, or spotting the northern lights in the winter.
