The Well

Stepping into The Well, Oslo’s grand spa empire, one transcends the ordinary in a choreographed symphony of wellness. Imagine an odyssey through 11 pools that echo the serenity of Nordic fjords, unwinding in 15 saunas and steam rooms that whisper ancient rituals from a Finnish sauna to a Turkish hammam. Amidst these, 25 treatment rooms offer sanctuaries where therapists, wielding nature’s bounty, administer transformative facials and wraps. Architectural brilliance defines the resort with Stein Erik Hagen’s vision, where two restaurants tantalize with epicurean delights and the top-tier Mori serves up culinary artistry. Bars infuse evenings with vibrant concoctions, all enfolded by a design ethos of bold hues and restorative timbers – a testament to Oslo’s luxurious escapade.

Bare Flyt

At Bare Flyt in Oslo, surrender to the rare silence of the isolation tank experience, a serene odyssey into sensory deprivation. Encapsulated within the cocoon of a float tank, gravity loses its grip, buoyed by a saline embrace that echoes the womb’s tranquil sanctuary. The double cabin, a novel retreat, invites tandem voyages into tranquillity, where two minds can drift in harmonious solitude. As the light fades and saltwater cradles you at body temperature, the world’s weight dissipates, blurring the bounds of flesh and fluid. Here, unfettered by the tactile anchor of the terra, the mind unfurls, casting off tensions and cultivating a fertile stillness where creativity and clarity blossom. Oslo’s Bare Flyt offers more than a mere pause; it’s a rejuvenating plunge into the profound depths of self-discovery.
