Take the plunge at Ribersborg Kallbadhus
A beloved institution, Ribersborg Kallbadhus is a 19th century sauna and spa, at the end of a pier in Ridersborg. It features five saunas, a steam room, a sun deck and access to the ocean, alongside its spa offering massages, facials and reflexology. There’s even a restaurant so you can enjoy a beer or fjord shrimp in between dips. Scandinavians are fearless when it comes to open-water swimming: even if you visit in January, not only will Ribersborg Kallbadhus be open, but you’ll be encouraged to get into the sea. There is nothing quite like a dip in ice-cold water to get the blood pumping and the endorphins flowing.
