As a guest, in addition to the assured personalised experience, you can also indulge yourself in the beauty of Swedish Lapland in four seasons – Spa under the northern lights in winter, swim under the midnight sun during the summer months, breathe the arctic fresh air from the seasonal rustic golden autumn and emerald spring forests.

This design reflects the northernmost relaxation culture. The extreme contrast between the hot and cold affirm you not only refreshment from the immersed blood circulation also soothing muscles and soften skins.
