World’s deepest bedroom, Sweden

A stony chamber, 155m below ground in a cold, dark mine. It certainly doesn’t sound like the lap of luxury. But hidden away in the snaking galleries and damp caverns of the historic Sala Silvermine in Sweden is an unlikely hotel suite.

Definitely not one for claustrophobics, the eerie chamber holds a double bed surrounded on three sides by rock, candles, seating and little else. The wider mine area hosts underground events, weddings included. But once the mine is shut – there’s nobody there but you and the ghosts of miners.

Your only contact with the outside world is through an intercom radio to an above-ground staff member.

The price includes a tour, and other activities include cave-diving and an adventure course with ropeways and a hanging bridge.
