Soria Moria Sauna in Dalen, Telemark

NB! SORIA MORIA IS CLOSED FROM 11.03.2020 TO 13.04.2020

!! To prevent possible spread of the Corona virus, Soria Moria sauna is CLOSED from 11.03.20 to 13.04.20. During the same period it will not be possible to book the sauna for future appointment.  The municipal doctor in Tokke 

Soria Moria is a work of art of a sauna - glittering like a piece of jewelry in Lake Bandak!  

The artistic idea
The inspiration for the sauna is derived from surrounding landscape and history. The characteristic silhouette of the building is an interpretation of the steep mountainsides surrounding the Bandak lake. The wooden shingle cladding is inspired by local building techniques. Integrated in the cladding are gleaming golden shingles. The gold is a reference to local folklore; to the mythical and outlandish. It also references the obvious contrast which arose betwwen the soft-spoken people of Telemark and lavish upper-class foreign travellers during the establishment of Dalen Hotel at the end of the nineteenth century.

For the public
Soria Moria serves as a focal point for everyone - a place of rest and reflection, for meeting and conversation. For local residents arranging sauna nights, the hotel guest strolling in his bathrobe through the park, the hiker coming down from the mountain or the tired cyclist after cycling the canal.
