This Is The First 'Energy Positive' Hotel To Open Above The Arctic Circle

By Desirée Kaplan

A team of architects at Snøhetta has designed a unique energy positive hotel called Svart. The hotel will be nestled at the foot of the Svartisen glacier in the Meløy municipality in northern Norway. While some hotel properties claim to have unique destinations, few can say they’re located above the Arctic Circle.  

If off the grid vacations are your thing, this destination might be for you. Svart can only be accessed by boat, and the team is planning to utilize an energy neutral boat to transport people to the hotel from Bodø.
