Spa and relaxation

Inspired by nature and uncomplicated by design, the Nordic countries see relaxation as an experience that simply goes hand in hand with the great outdoors. Whether it is soaking in the mineral rich waters of Iceland’s hidden lagoons, detoxing in a traditional Finnish sauna or joining a yoga session on a frozen river, nature always takes the center stage in the Nordic spa experience.

Hidden lagoons

Feel the forces of nature work wonders on body and mind in one of Iceland's many naturally heated lagoons. The pools are infused with minerals from the volcanic soils. Both water temperature and minerals are a genuine treat to your skin.

The Finnish sauna

It's tradition!

The scent of birch, tar and eucalyptus begin to flare up your nostrils as the body begins to heat up to the mellow heat of the 70 degree room temperature. The session followed by an invigorating dip in a nearby lake rounds off the first cycle of the Nordic sauna experience. The spa routine is usually repeated 3-4 times.  Those who like to go big on tradition can gently whip themselves with a bundle of birch branches to boost the blood circulation. After this physical and mental detox it is time to cuddle up next to a fireplace. During summer this is when you can take in the view of the serene nature surrounding you. In winter sipping a mug of tea in front the fireplace lets you rid yourself from the last bit of stress.
