Remote retreats are considerably becoming a more sought-after vacation for travel bugs that seeking out a new adventure and avoiding the touristy crowds.

Called Arctic Bath, this new off-the-grid luxury spa hotel has just 12 rooms, with a main area that “floats” on the Lule River in Swedish Lapland. 

“Situated under the northern lights in winter, and the midnight sun during the summer months, 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 Artic Bath website reads. The one-of-a-kind hotel is focused on wellness and a spa-like experience. It features four saunas and an open-air center that serves as a plunge pool in the winter months. 

Each room has been thoughtfully designed with a high level of comfort and luxury in mind, while keeping wellness as the overall focus. There’s an array of cabins to choose from, all offering the comforts of home while being secluded in the beauty of Sweden’s nature.

And even in the middle of the Swedish countryside, there’s a lot to do, including day trips, horseback riding, and skiing experiences. This is the perfect retreat for those looking to reconnect with nature and get some rest and relaxation in the process.  Space is limited, and with reservation just opening, act fast so you don’t miss out on this opportunity.
