Discover Sauna Norway

There are saunas in the towns and cities, but also in the countryside, which differ a little. In the countryside, saunas are situated close to the water. In town, there is a difference between the hotel saunas, public saunas and residence saunas. Saunas are used to activate blood circulation by alternating cold and hot. The heat reaches 80 to 100C, it is increased by the evaporation of the water thrown onto hot stones. To cool down, you are meant to dive into a lake or the sea, or take a cold shower. Always built with wood, the interior of a sauna is made of large tiers. The temperature gets higher as you go higher up. The air circulation and humidity level must be set properly. A sauna that is too dry and too hot must be avoided. Of Finnish origin, saunas are a good way to relax.
