“Sweat rituals are the oldest health rituals we know”
says Head of Development at Farris Bad Spa, Lasse Eriksen
The Norwegian sauna culture and heritage go deep, especially in the north. We continue the tradition and get inspired by bringing in sauna champions from other countries. A continuous search for new forms of healthy sweating.
In November 2018, we opened the largest event sauna in Northern Europe.
Daily, some of the world’s foremost international Aufgussmasters run spectacular rituals in the new sauna. Scents, lights, steam, music and a touch of entertainment makes this a unique experience. All rituals are open to hotel guests and spa guests.
In a herbal sauna in the mineral spa, everyone gets a face mask, and a sauna master guides through the ritual. Steam is distributed in the room, for optimal health effect and well-being.
The ritual ends with rinsing off the masks in one of the showers.
