They say size is everything. And in Larvik, Norway the modern, beachfront Farris Bad hotel boasts Scandinavia’s largest spa – 2,500 square metres of spa area and the only one that has been established on a true mineral source. Water aficionados will love it here as every day, fresh spring water flows from 55 metres deep under the beech forests into the mineral cave. In addition, the spa features physical and metal training, as well as balanced diets and treatments, a true Scandi-temple of inner and outer peace. And if you’re feeling like a viking, you can take an authentic ice-bath in the nearby fjord.
