Travel Tuesday: Arctic Bath Hotel
A 5-star luxury hotel is set to open in Sweden and it's one that floats on the water! On this Travel Tuesday, we take you inside the Arctic Bath Hotel.
The Arctic Bath is floating on the Lule River in the Scandinavian north, and the owners say it will be a mixture of "luxury and nature".
The design was reportedly inspired by Swedish log-shipping traditions, and that the form of the hotel mimics the result of wayward logs bundling together away from those shipments.
The hotel includes six rooms -- each with saunas, a cold plunge pool, spa treatment rooms, a restaurant, a bar and a central open-air bath.
In the winter, the hotel freezes in the water and when the ice thaws, the hotel begins accommodations again.
The Arctic Bath Hotel is set to open later this year.
