The Sturebadet Baths: a Nordic spa

The Sturebadet Baths: a Nordic spa

You know about saunas and Swedish massages, but maybe not about Sami treatments, a wellness speciality of northern Sweden.

Legend has it that Greta Garbo came here. Its Art Nouveau interior with a hint of Moorish influence goes against the current trend for stylish spas.

Created in 1885 by Carl Curman, a doctor who wanted to convert Stockholmers to holistic therapies for health and wellness, the Sturebadet baths have remained faithful to the spirit of their founder while offering novelties. Turkish baths, hydro massages and heated swimming pool are all available. Instead of saunas and the many varieties of Swedish massage, try the Sami treatment. Guests undress in a teepee, and alternate between exfoliation and a 39°C bath, followed by a long massage with essence of birch oil (since birch has detoxifying properties). For a romantic moment as a couple, some packages offer duo treatments.

Maybe feeling slaphappy at first, you will leave completely spruced up and full of incredible energy!
