The Telemark Canal is a 65-mile waterway in southern Norway that connects a series of lakes. It’s an important, historic attraction that, unfortunately, has seen declining tourism numbers in recent years. In an effort to combat that, a large-scale tourism and attraction project dubbed “The Tales of a Waterway” was created that would see each municipality along the stretch of canal getting its own individual destination. The Soria Moria outdoor sauna at Dalen Hotel in the Tokke municipality is one of those projects. Designed by local firm Feste Landscape/Architecture, Soria Moria is a multi-room sauna built on the Bandak Lake accessible by a long footbridge. The entire build references local culture and geography with a silhouette designed as an interpretation of the steep mountainsides, wooden shingle cladding as is common in the area and a fair bit of gold color as a reference to local folklore. And the views from inside are absolutely incredible. If you needed one more reason to visit the region, this is it.
