Exploring Arctic regions and booking one-of-a-kind Northern European experiences may sound like a trip best taken in the winter, but with the flexible architecture of the Arctic Bath Hotel and Spa, families and travelers explore the natural wonders of Hedavan, Sweden, year-round.


In an effort to boost Arctic European travel and share incredible experiences with tourists, Off the Map Travel, Interreg Nord and the Visit Arctic Europe project teamed up to create the Arctic Bath Hotel and Spa.


Between the travel experts of Off the Map Travel, developing efforts of the Interreg Nord program and Visit Arctic Europe’s tourism itineraries, travelers expect to be dazzled.


The hotel features world-renowned Swedish design and interior furnishings at its finest, resembling a circular nest that wraps guests in while keeping the elements out. The exclusive resort maintains the natural beauty of the area while providing exceptional views of the great outdoors and wild surroundings.

The high-end accommodations and exclusive getaway sits on the Lule River, located in northern Sweden, floating in the summer and frozen in place in the winter. With only six rooms, the Arctic Bath is the perfect escape for luxury spa treatments, seclusion, natural beauty and unbeatable views of the Northern Lights.


Take time to escape, unwind and indulge in wellness amenities, or explore the surrounding wonderland of natural beauty. Take a dip in the bath, warm up in the sauna or enjoy a spa treatment before heading to the restaurant with the family.


The new project will be completed this year and guests looking for a first-hand experience should inquire quickly — the one-of-a-kind resort is sure to fill up quickly. Check out dates, availability and pricing online, or email Off the Map Travel.
