Soria Moria Sauna Spa, Dalen, Norway
Set in Dalen, a wildly picturesque spot in Telemark county, 160km southwest of Oslo, is operated by the landmark hotel Dalen. Named after a well-known Norwegian fairytale about a gold palace in the mountains, the sauna is the very definition of Scandi-functionality and minimalism. Its sharp-edged polygonal silhouette is a striking echo of the surrounding mountains; its warm interior lined with blonde timber and floor-to-ceiling windows takes in the entirety of the tectonic view; whilst the exterior of golden-hued metal and pine shingles and decking acts almost as a natural camouflage against the lake’s mirror flat surface.
