Zen out under the Arctic Sky...

February 2012

Why settle for a normal boat trip under the spectacular Arctic skies when you can take a dip in the hot tub on deck, have a steam, take a panoramic view sauna or just relax on the spa boat?


The spa boat offers spectacular views, an expert chef and can be taken out on small trips with treatments involved or be used for adventures such as ski by Boat or other trekking and boating adventures.


Combining two of favorite pursuits in one luxury package, the spa boat – designed by Norway-based, Finnish architect Sami Rintala – brings an added dimension to the standard spa weekend.


Taking a stripped-down 1950s fishing boat as the skeleton of his project, the interior designer adapted the bare woods and curving walls as integral design elements of his vision. The depths of the hold, where tons of North Sea fish were once stored, now plays host to a wood-clad spa area - featuring a Turkish Hammam (complete with the obligatory steam bath, bath tub and hot tiles) Zen lounge with wood burning fireplace and a sauna surrounded by panoramic windows.


The Scandi-inspired luxury continues on deck, with a hot tub designed for mid-winter Aurora Borealis gazing, whilst a seven meter-high diving board provides release for those with more frenetic agendas. Boasting three well-proportioned guest bedrooms, the spa boat can play host to as many as twelve guests at a time, whilst the on-board kitchen – which brings to mind many a pared-down Scandinavian eatery – comes complete with a host of professional chefs.


Moored in the Arctic city of Tromsoe, the spa boat offers an authentic take on the spa experience!
