Aurora Borealis


The Ultimate Travel Company’s trip to Arctic Bath, Sweden is the second recommended trip included in an article titled ’Sauna like a Scandi: 25 dreamy winter retreats’ in The Times. Arctic Bath is described as “Sweden’s coolest spa”, with the new Scandinavian Airlines flight from London to Luela providing the “prospect of blissful weekends”.

For a cool spa: Arctic Bath, Lulea, Sweden

A new Scandinavian Airlines flight from London to Lulea next month opens up the prospect of blissful weekends at Arctic Bath, Sweden’s coolest spa, as well as days of snow and silence, saunas and exhilarating icy dips in the pool at the centre of its doughnut-shaped building, floating on the Lule River. By mid- December its floating cabins will be locked into the ice, and daylight is precious, so stay in a land cabin – more style, more space and more light, through a double-height glass front.

Details Four nights’ B&B, with two at Arctic Bath and two in Stockholm, from £2,820pp, including flights, one dinner at Arctic Bath and a snowshoe hike
