Snow Grottos and Steam Suites: Inside Viking Cruise’s LivNordic Spa

It’s been called the best cruise line spa by numerous critics and publications – but what exactly sets Viking Ocean Cruises’ LivNordic Spa apart?

For one, access is complimentary for all guests, a rarity among cruise lines which typically charge a daily fee to enjoy the spa facilities. For another, its large, heated thalassotherapy seawater pool is the centerpiece and one of the spa’s most beautiful features.

But the most unique area of all is the Snow Grotto, part of a system modeled after Nordic bathing rituals. It’s exactly what it sounds like – a freezing cold room with snow falling indoors!

Here’s how they suggest to use it: first soak in the warm pool, then douse yourself with a cold shower, head into the steam room, and finally enter the chilly yet refreshing Snow Grotto. Alternating between these is intended to be a detoxing and invigorating experience.

To see the LivNordic Spa for yourself, climb aboard with Viking Ocean Cruises. Your Stellar Travel advisor can help select the perfect itinerary.
