SaunasDiscover other facets of relaxation with our 8 unique saunas!

Nordik Spa-Nature’s eight saunas are sometimes inspired by the nordic tradition, sometimes by the Mediterranean tradition. Nordic saunas, usually arranged in wooden buildings, use a dry heat produced by overheated stones, while southern saunas favor moist heat (steam) within buildings dominated by stone and ceramic. Discover the history and benefits of the saunas!

  • FINLANDIA Sauna

    Finnish sauna

    As the name suggests, the Finlandia sauna is part of the pure Nordic tradition of Finland, thought to date back at least 2000 years. Constructed in a spacious building dominated by solid wood, Finlandia has three levels of benches to vary exposure to heat, with the highest level being the hottest. A high-efficiency wood stove heats over a tonne of stones, which radiate dry heat. Every hour, "löyly"—or steam vapour—is produced by pouring water or snow over the hot stones. Finlandia’s large capacity and its respect for tradition make this sauna the ideal place for the Aufguss ritual.

    Characteristics
    • Type: Dry
    • Temperature: 165-175 °F
    • Atmosphere: Silence

  • TULI Sauna

    Meditation sauna

    In Finnish, Tuli means "fire". We describe his dry sauna made from solid wood as "meditative" because its octagonal shape and central pillar lend themselves to a form of meditation. The current of heat radiates from the middle, rises to the ceiling and rolls back down the outer walls. Thus, sitting with your back to the wall allows the heat to flow down your spine, relaxing your entire nervous system. For some, the fireplace in the middle will induce an inner reverie, while the narrow windows around the outside invite a mental diversion that is equally beneficial.

    Characteristics
    • Type: Dry
    • Temperature: 185-195 °F
    • Atmosphere: Silence

  • AROMI Sauna

    Aromatic sauna

    Built out of red cedar, the AROMI sauna can be thought of as a "soft" sauna. The only sauna where silence is not required, its lower temperature is perfect for enjoying several long stays and enjoying the view of the neighbouring forest and the city in the distance. Its perfect integration into the landscape, its wide bay windows, and the alternating scents of fruit, wood, and herbs diffused every 20 minutes heighten one’s sense of being close to nature. 

    Characteristics
    • Type : Dry
    • Temperature : 140-150 °F
    • Atmosphere: Social

  • BARIK Sauna

    Dry sauna

    Though it features original and exclusive architecture, the Barik sauna is nevertheless part of the Nordic dry heat sauna tradition. Built entirely from red cedar, this small, tubular sauna creates a very special climate in which the enveloping heat is perceived as higher than it actually is. Its compact dimensions, curved walls, and lack of windows combine to make the Barik sauna an intensely intimate experience.

    • Atmosphere: Silence

  • MAA sauna

    Earth sauna

    The Maa sauna (Maa meaning “earth” in Finnish) stems from the rustic tradition of saunas with log walls half-buried in the ground and covered with sod roofs. In fact, the Maa sauna is partially dug into the bedrock, which is why we call it a “telluric” sauna. With its direct contact with the bedrock, this sauna maintains very high heat, made bearable by increased fresh air flow. With its unique climate, Maa is the ideal sauna for an authentic Nordic experience.

    Characteristics
    • Type: Dry
    • Temperature: 205-215 °F
    • Atmosphere: Silence

  • VAPORO Eucalyptus Sauna

The high humidity and ceramic building materials give these saunas a distinctive climate. In the Eucalyptus Vaporo, the steam is infused with molecular essential oils of natural eucalyptus and mint. Eucalyptus is known for its many benefits, in particular for the respiratory and immune systems.
