“Emily In Paris” star Lily Collins enjoyed a Scandinavian honeymoon with her new husband Charlie McDowell, and the pair have marveled at the incredible scenery, enjoyed great food, and took a dip in the icy water of Sweden’s Lule River. And this Swedish spa is definitely a place you’ll want to add to your travel bucket list.

“We took the plunge…” Collins captioned an Oct. 1 Instagram post. The first image is Collins standing outside the bathhouse of Arctic Bath, a floating spa in the Swedish Lapland.

The bathhouse is designed to look like the timber that floated down the Lule during the height of the Swedish timber industry. Inside the structure, you can partake in several different spa activities like a body scrub, massage, cocoon wrap, hot tub, and of course, an invigorating ice bath.

On either side of the bathhouse are the cabins that guests can stay in. These cabins, which also float on the Lule, are made with sustainable materials and almost blend into the surrounding scenery. Suites and larger guest houses are also on the Arctic Bath property. 

And when you’re not dunking in the chilly Lule river, there are so many activities to partake in around the area, all of which depend on what time of year you visit. During the winter, you can go on a self-guided Lapland husky sled tour, go ice fishing, see the Northern Lights, and hang out with reindeer. Or, in the summer, you can stay up and watch the midnight sun, go canoeing, and try your hand at spin fishing.

This place is beyond beautiful and doesn’t even look real. But Lily Collins and Charlie McDowell have been there, seen it, and now we want to follow their lead.
