Oslo: Self-Service Public Floating Sauna Ticket

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!

What people are saying about Oslofjord

Overall rating

Although the audio guide did not download correctly for us, the view and ride were lovely. The boat did a large loop around the central islands at an enjoyable pace. Plenty of space among the multiple floors both indoor and outside. Food and drinks were available for purchase on the inside main deck with tables, electrical outlets, and a knowledgeable crew. Would highly recommend the trip if you’d enjoy the simple ride, though if you’d like to do the calculations with the ferry timetables, those ships would be an alternative, albeit not as secluded as this Fjord Cruise.

The tour guide was just super friendly and funny. She did say that you should tell her if she talked too much, but I think she could have talked more, she just has so much knowledge that you won't find it anywhere else. And the music on board was soooo well chosen, it just rounded off the atmosphere perfectly. The route you drive along was also really big and beautiful. I really recommend it!

The fjord cruise was the perfect length, and the boat had so much character. The entire experience was just perfect.

Very friendly & knowledgable staff, boat had a toilet, bar & snacks.

The ship was very comfortable with great visibility all around
