A concealed, cinematic spa in the Nordic Hills
‘Bade Fjorden’, the Bathing Fjord, is a spa set in an alternate world. Hidden away from the bustling outside world, Bade Fjorden has little frontage, buried deep underground. The earth is stable and solid. The spa is insular, concealed with a series of walled gardens, guarding it from external elements. Tucked behind a humbling threshold, it sparks the inception of a journey. Every space is a scene of a grand film, leading towards the expansive plunge pool, which plunges itself into the vast, open landscape of Voss. A hidden gem at first, the spa reveals itself as a multifaceted experience, which makes way for an enchanting and dramatic experience.
