ArcticBath is a new hotel adrift on the Lule River in the Scandinavian north — a glacial haven of snow-tipped forests, world-class fishing, amazing wildlife and the Northern Lights.

ArcticBath can  offer  a pleasant  escape from the everyday and this upcoming resort in the Swedish Lapland, couldn’t be further from normal life — it’s literally floating on a river in the middle of nowhere.

The unusual design of ArcticBath has a homegrown history.

“You don’t have to copy things made elsewhere, it’s not interesting,” says ArcticBath articitect Bertil Harström — who worked on the project alongside Johan Kauppi. “I think the interesting things come from your own history and your background.”
