Looking for a totally out-of-the-box retreat venue that will have your participants talking about your retreat FOREVER? 😮

Nestled in the heart of Swedish Lapland, the Arctic Bath Hotel offers a one-of-a-kind experience that combines luxury with a deep connection to nature. This floating hotel on the Lule River is not just a place to stay, but a total destination experience.

Your visit won’t be cheap💰– but for what you get, I feel the adventure is well worth it! Here’s a closer look at what makes the Arctic Bath Hotel a must-visit for travelers seeking an unforgettable adventure…



The Arctic Bath Hotel is a floating architectural wonder designed to look like a cluster of logs adrift in the river, a nod to the region’s timber-floating history.  Anchored in the serene Lule River, this hotel is all about peace and immersion in nature.

The centerpiece is a stunning circular bathhouse with an open-air cold bath, perfect for an invigorating dip in the Lule River’s fresh waters year-round. In winter, the bathhouse is surrounded by ice, creating a magical, otherworldly vibe.

But that’s not all – the bathhouse also features saunas and a hot bath, giving you the ultimate Scandinavian spa experience. Built with sustainability at its core, the hotel uses natural, local materials and blends seamlessly into the stunning landscape.

The hotel is just as amazing in the winter as it is in the summer depending on what kind of vibe and which activities interest you the most for your retreat! (Wanna enjoy the northern lights? Then go in the wintertime!)



Cozy and Luxurious Accommodations!

Choose from six floating cabins or six land cabins, each designed with a cozy, minimalist Scandinavian style. The floating cabins are like dreamy islands, with large windows offering breathtaking views of the river and sky. Picture yourself waking up to the gentle sway of the water and stepping out onto your private deck to soak in the tranquility.

The land cabins are nestled among the trees, providing a cozy retreat with all the comforts of luxury living. Think underfloor heating, mini-bars, and private decks where you can relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. The interiors are all about natural materials and calming neutral colors, making you feel instantly at home.
