Sardona forest sauna ritual


Experience a touching connection with nature in the Sardona sauna tent, surrounded by the UNESCO World Heritage region: the sauna ritual allows you to feel and appreciate the power of nature up close.

  • Unique location of the sauna tent in the UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site Tectonic Arena Sardona
  • Sauna ritual for deep relaxation and experiencing nature
  • Experience nature: Massage with twigs and peeling with mountain stream sand
  • Bath in the ice-cold Tamina water

In the middle of the UNESCO World Heritage region, in a small forest just before Vättis, stands the Sardona Sauna Tent. Here you can let yourself be touched by nature in the truest sense of the word. A massage with twigs, a mountain stream sand peeling, herbal scents and a bath in the ice-cold water of the Tamina relax and refresh body, mind and soul. The sauna ritual (with the leaves of the beech) allows you to feel nature up close and appreciate its power. The beech stands for relaxation, inner peace and grounding. The gentle touch of its leaves, the scent of the forest and the crackling of the fire lead to deep relaxation and intensify the experience of nature. The type of ritual can also be adapted on request. You can find all rituals here.

To make the sauna ritual a unique and successful experience, there are some important points to consider: 

  • Take enough time to arrive and get involved. Make sure that you do not have any other appointments after the ritual, because the ritual is performed intuitively and can sometimes take a bit longer than planned. Allow yourself some time for yourself afterwards and listen to your body's needs!
  • You may enjoy the sauna in your bathing clothes or naked, just as you feel comfortable.
  • Taking a sauna has many health benefits. However, it also has risks for people with health problems. Please inform us about your health condition. Insurance is the responsibility of the participants. Any liability is declined.
