Wellness in Norway: a Relaxing Wishlist | Black Platinum Gold

Our compass leads us to the fascinating landscapes of Norway. The idea came up from a peaceful aim, just to calm our nerves from the whole tension they are subjected to during these “still” days.  


Nearly 30 km away from Oslo, in the little village of SofiemyrThe Well is considered the biggest wellness center throughout Norway: it expands for 10,500 square meters and offers a unique experience just for adults: 11 different pools, 15 types of saunas and steam rooms, over 100 showers, waterfalls and so on, both indoors and outdoors. Moreover, it is possible to eat local food, like fine Norwegian fish in a beautiful restaurant, take a break in the relax-room, and drink something in one of the bars afterwards. Outdoors, you can even enjoy the marvelous mountain landscape while bathing in a jacuzzi or purifying yourself in a sauna while surrounded by pine trees. 


Larvik is a little town south of Oslo where we find an incredible deluxe hotel, the Farris Bad.

In 2019, it was ranked among the World Luxury Hotel Awardsthanks to the fancy adventure it provides.

In Tromsø – a famous cultural hub in the north of Norway – among the picturesque mountains overlooking the sea, it is possible to spend unforgettable moments: Vulkana used to be a traditional Norwegian fishing boat and has now been turned into a first class vessel for wellness and exploration.

On board, you can find a hot tub, a Finnish sauna and a steam bath and every spa-facility. Furthermore you can experience a regenerating moment while swimming in the ocean as the chef prepares local dishes on board. The dining area allows you to gaze the wonderful views of the mountains and the unique evening sky of Norway, painted by a multitude of colors’ shades: it will surely be one of the most remarkable experiences you will ever have.
