What is a Nordic Spa? 

For thousands of years, Scandinavians relax amidst the beauty of nature in hot springs and rivers. The hot-cold contrast of their bathing practice provides numerous health benefits and total relaxation.

This traditional hot-cold-relaxation circuit is now commonly known as the Nordic bath circuit, Nordic spa treatment, or an Outdoor Thermal Spa experience. These types of spas are located near forests, along rivers, and by mountains, providing spectacular views of nature while guests complete the invigorating and relaxing circuit.

This Nordic circuit starts with heating the body by working up a sweat in a sauna, spa, hot tub, or steam room. Next comes the cold of plunging into a cold river or outdoor cold plunge. Finally, to bring the body back to its regular state, the last part of the circuit involves relaxation in a spa, steam bath, or wrapped in a bathrobe by the fire, enjoying the serene natural environment.
