In Scandinavia, the ritual of sauna and bathing is a national pastime—a highly social and communal one, we might add. How could it not be? Sitting together intimately in close quarters, conversing about everything and nothing, followed by a quick group dip into an invigorating cold body of water. Repeat several times, have a night cap, and start over again the next day. Join us on a tour of an exemplary spa structure by Windgardhs. Images via Windgardhs, unless otherwise noted.
