Special Indian Sweat Lodge and Hot Tub Wilderness Spa at West Silens beach

A new experience, the Native American Sweat Lodge is originally from North America. Indians warmed stones until they became rödglödande (red hot). Then moved them into a “sweat lodge” which was constructed of bent twigs and who stood in a ring covered with leather. Here they poured water on the rocks and had fragrant herbs, which allegedly make contact with Manito, the Indians’ protector. Today you can experience a bit more of a modern “sweat lodge” in Risviken south of Årjäng. A Hut of twigs is replaced by a timber sauna but it is fired directly on the floor to get the stones glowing. Fragrant leaves and herb oil is mixed in water which is then poured on the rocks. When you feel you’ve sat in the sauna long enough or are getting too hot, you can take a sudden dip at the small sandy beach. In winter we have a hole in the ice, cold but beautiful! After dipping in the lake, it’s up into the Hot Tub which has ample room for 8-10 people. The water is heated to 39 degrees, so is wonderfully warm. After the bath we can arrange anything from a barbecue meal to a full 3-course dinner should you require it. This can be held at the campfire, in a major Indian Tepee or in a small charcoal burners’ hut whatever suits your wishes and numbers. Best time for a Sweat Lodge is in the evening just before sunset. The area is illuminated by torches and bonfires giving it a golden beauty. You can relax view the full moon, watch the stars slowly appear over head and listen to the silence. How much does it cost? Starting fee for the Sweat Lodge Hot Tub: 2400 kr. Up to 8 persons. For participants over 8 persons add an extra 100 SEK / person. Towels are included, both large and a small. Barbecue or full 3-course meal,
