    The saunas in Oslo are magical places. Perhaps the only place where you can go alone, with very little clothing, be as red as a tomato, and strike up a conversation with complete strangers. Oslo Badstueforening is a place where the myth of Norwegians being closed-off really doesn't hold true. People talk, give each other tips on cold-water bathing, and smile simply because it's wonderful to be alive, warm, and sweaty in a cozy sauna. 

    Oslo Badstueforening is a place for both physical and mental well-being—a community that makes the city warmer, both literally and metaphorically! This year's Lysløypa offering is at the sauna near Kroloftet, where you can overlook Alnaelva while enjoying the sauna. Afterwards, you can bring along the new friend you made while sweating and visit Kruttverket. And then you can stroll back home.
