Incentive winners' stress will drift away at Arctic Bath, a floating hotel and spa on the Lule River in northern Sweden. The starkly beautiful property, which takes design cues from Sweden's historic lumber industry, is set for a winter debut in late January.

Of the property's 12 cabins, half will float above water in the summer and rest on the frozen river in winter. The other half will be elevated on poles above land and connect to the floating complex via footbridge.

Wellness is a central focus of Arctic Bath. An open-air cold bath sits at the center of the complex, surrounded by a hot bath, four saunas and a spa-treatment room. The on-site restaurant will specialize in flavors of the Arctic, featuring locally sourced, sustainable ingredients. After a bath under the Northern Lights, participants can enjoy authentic local experiences like ice-fishing, snowshoeing or embarking on a "moose safari."
