This is a hot spring we traveled to in the middle of nowhere just before New Year's. If you can put up with your eyelids starting to stick together when the steam from the water freezes and getting dressed outside in -20°C you get to lie in the heavenly hot water with a view of the northern lights and the stars that are out of this world. Or at least out of the city light world and impressive for us city rats. You also have access to a convenient beer cooler nearby. Swimming takes just a tiny bit of determination though. It's the "changing room" you can see on the picture. If you forget to put your clothes into a plastic bag when you jump in the steam will turn them in to ice sculptures. Not recommended.
