Sauna session

  • Festningsallmenningen (map)

This weekend we invite you sweat and dance with Strangefruit for 6-9pm on Friday! On Saturday several comedians and alternative acts will make you laugh during hu:Mor 2019 from 3-6pm, and Olle Abstract is the boss for this night's soundtrack from 6-9pm. And on Sunday we take it down a notch and have our sauna calm and cozy for you to recover after dancing through the night.

Welcome to Sauna Session in our largest sauna, Árdna. The bathing ritual has been an important part of the Nordic way of life for a long time. Our sauna has a pleasant temperature of 60°C. Outside, you can enjoy a 7000 litre aquavit barrel that is converted to a sauna of 80-90°C and two cold baths as well as a shower. There are two dressing rooms, one for women and one for men. Fully licenced bar, and snacks can be ordered in both Naustet and Árdna.

Bring your own towel or rent one in the bar for 50,-. You can also buy a padlock for 50,- if you don’t bring your own. Bathing suits are required in the sauna and we recommend you bring your own flip-flops since the floor can be hot. Please note that you're not allowed to bring your own alcohol.

Sauna Session can include performance by authors, poets, musicians, DJs, slam poetry, performance artists or sound works. See program on for more info.

SALT Art - Music is located across the water from the Opera.
