Bookings Being Taken For Floating Hotel With Views Of The Northern Lights
I know what you're thinking - Aurora Borealis, at this time of year, in this part of the world?
Yes, and you'll be able to see it.
Well, that's if you are willing to fork out the readies to stay at the Arctic Bath hotel. If you've not heard about it yet, the Arctic Bath is an amazing hotel in Northern Sweden that is frozen into the middle of a river.
News broke about it opening about 16 months ago, but now the wait is finally over. It's been touted as the ultimate place to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights.
Now, if you so desire, you can book your very own room at this beautiful location.
AnnKathrin Lundqvist, who is one of the designers of the hotel, said in a statement: "The Arctic Bath really is a first - it's a special spa experience,
"So much thought, engineering and ingenuity have come together to provide visitors with an experience they can't find anywhere else."
Yep, that sounds about right. Certainly when you look at the pictures, you can see how it would be a pretty unique experience.
It's a fairly isolating experience, that's for sure. Putting aside for a minute that it is in the middle of nowhere, there are also only six cabins available on the water and six cabins on the land.

Depending on which time of year you plan to head there, your cabin - if you choose one of the watery ones - will either be floating in, or completely frozen into, the Lule River.
However, there are some mod cons involved. You'll get free Wi-Fi access, air conditioning or heating.
Again, that's depending on which time of year you're there.
The spa portion of the hotel has a treatment room, four separate saunas, a hot bath and an outdoor cold bath.
Presumably you've got to head to the sauna before chucking yourself into the plunge pool outside. That'll put hairs on your chest.
In the middle of the floating cabins is an outdoor area where you can have a jump into the river, should you so wish.
That might even be underneath the eerie glow of the Northern Lights.
So, how much is all this gonna cost? Well, there's a travel company offering the whole experience (including five course dinners and breakfast) for $5,040 (£4,031) without flights.
If you fancy that, reservations are being taken for February 2020 through to February 2021.
Be quick, as these'll sell out for sure.
