Arctic Bath, Harads, Swedish Lapland


Opened at the end of 2019, the Arctic Bath is an extraordinary new floating spa hotel located on Lule River near the small village Harads in Swedish Lapland. Built on the water, the hotel floats during summer and freezes into the ice during winter embracing the region’s seasonality.

The brainchild of the team behind the nearby Treehotel, this 12-room hotel has been designed by architects Bertil Harström and Johan Kaupp and aims to harness the extreme Arctic seasons. Constructed using local materials and with very little impact on the environment, the circular design of the main building is centred around an open-air plunge pool.

The main building is accessed by a walkway and houses the restaurant, lounge bar, four saunas, the spa treatment room, changing rooms and a small shop. The wellness centre offers massage, hot stone treatments, cleansing, detox and relaxation. A hot bath is available for soothing muscles between bracing cold dips in the plunge pool.


Floating cabins
A short distance from the main building and on the water’s edge is a flotilla of six floating cabins offering Scandi-chic interiors with double bed, shower room, underfloor heating and an exterior wooden deck – ideal for basking under the summer sun or keeping watch for the northern lights.

Land cabins
There are also six more elevated cabins built on the tree-lined shore. Featuring a spiral staircase up to the loft room, these cabins have 5 beds, bathroom, underfloor heating.
