Oslo: Self-Service Public Floating Sauna Ticket

7. Oslo: Self-Service Public Floating Sauna Ticket

Embrace your inner-Viking at “Mad Goats Tjuvholmen” in central Oslo, located in the modern waterside neighbourhood of Tjuvholmen, nearby the Astrup Fearnley modern art museum. Tjuvholmen is known to be less crowded than waterfront areas, making our saunas experience quieter, lending to a relaxing and exclusive sauna experience - Tjuvholmen is also known for having the cleanest swimming water in the inner Oslo Fjord. We at Mad Goats have planted seaweed and mussels underneath our floating saunas, which help to filter the water and encourage the return of marine life, doing our part in helping to keep Oslo clean and green! While relaxing in our floating saunas, enjoy beautiful views out onto the water, and out to Oslo Fjords islands. Our saunas have large windows that allow you to observe all the beauty of Oslofjord: sunsets, sunrises, snowcapped or forested islands. Getting too hot? - then take a refreshing dip in Oslo Fjord. Oslo Fjord stats at a refreshing temperature all year around from 3 degrees in the middle of winter, to 20 degrees in the height of summer. We are open from 0700 until 2100, with sessions ranging from 1-1.5hrs. The saunas are heated in the morning from 0700 and again at 1500, which usually keeps the saunas warm throughout the day, by regular sauna use. If the sauna oven is not lit on your arrival, we have fire starting material that you can use to easily fire up the oven. The saunas have heaters installed, meaning that the saunas are never below 15 degrees, which makes them much quicker to heat up. Floating saunas and ice bathing are an authentic Nordic experience which combines both nature and urban life, making you feel alive and energised. Go to the sauna with your friends, or make new ones there, whilst engaging in an activity that is healthy, fun, and refreshing. Note: Our saunas are self-service meaning you must open the sauna yourself, and you will be required to light the sauna oven unless someone has been there before you. We provide all fire-starting materials. The saunas have heaters installed so will already be at around 10-15 degrees on arrival, making them quick to heat up from there. We do pre-heat the saunas every morning by 0700 (our first session of the day) and again by 1500. Catch you in the sauna, goat!

Overall rating

(595 reviews)

We had a gorgeous sunny day, but still very cold. The ship has blankets for passengers, which was a pleasant surprise. I would highly recommend this trip as a 'must do'. And if you can, have a hot chocolate, highlight of the trip, according to my daughter!

highly recommend this activity to get a better sense of oslo and the surrounding islands that reflect more of norwegian culture than the global capital itself

I really liked the experience. The guide gave us curious information and we were able to see the fjord very well.

Truely silent! Very relaxing, informative and beautiful views.

Great boat, great view of the fjords in sunshine and 9'+
