From Jämtland with love
I am absolutely convinced that it is possible to create more unique experiences around forest, lake and mountains, and I think it's just sooo fun to think about this. I live in Jämtland, Häggenås and love my home contry. These are just some ideas, take it or leave it. Mountain tourism can certainly create more jobs, we have so much up here, cross country skiing, hiking, fishing, going canoe and kayak, ride a sled, just go out in the woods and pick berries and mushrooms ..
Imagine what fun if someone built a small, moderately luxurious Spa with a long, narrow pool. If we imagine a pool heated in the winter, it can't of course be too large and must be isolated well away. Maybe 12x2,5 meters would be something? One could have a cover over when not in use as you quite quickly unfold. They could offer bathrobes, coats, fur hats, sandals etc. so people do not freeze too much. Of course a sauna right next to the pool. A mountain hotel in Jämtland already has a similar outdoor facility, I know, but in a smaller format.
Here are photos and video montages I have made. I love playing with the idea of making Jämtland cozier and I feel free to mix in concepts from Asia, Thailand, Bali "infinity pools". The view on these first photos is from Storsjöstrand just below Statoil and Storsjöbadet with "annersia" opposite.
It's a bit bold ideas here but the ice hotel in Jukkasjarvi
is a very unusual idea, it's a fantastic idea and it works! Nature is "in".
Conceived bathhouse , view from Häggenås . Obviously winterized and hot pool. One can swim under the window glass and out, just like in many other bathhouses. You must get below the water to come out.
