Wood-fired sauna

During the colder seasons of the year, there is no water in the pier sauna. Instead, it functions as a wood-fired sauna that you heat yourself. The pier sauna also has changing rooms and a space with tables and benches. Feel free to bring along some snacks or drinks for a complete experience.

If you need to dispose of trash, you can do so at the Norrviken waste station, which you pass by on the way up from the pier sauna.

Price per day: 1790 SEK

Who can winter bathe?

Almost everyone! However, if you have cardiovascular disease or other illnesses, you should consult your doctor first. When you winter bathe, your blood pressure increases when you step into the cold water. Therefore, if you have constantly high blood pressure, you should avoid winter bathing. However, if it is temporarily high due to work, stress, or separation, winter bathing can actually lower blood pressure.

What are the health effects of winter bathing?

There are currently only scattered studies on the effects of winter bathing. A Finnish docent named Pirkko Huttunen suggests that it can alleviate pain and inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis patients and that bathing makes people happier, reduces tension, pain, stress, and fatigue.
