Norway’s Spa Surprise

Polar Safari’s Vulkana

 

 

For clients who crave a secluded, tranquil spa experience, we recommend looking no further than Polar Safari’s Vulkana, a 1950s trawler stationed in Tromso, Norway. Translation: A 60-year-old fishing boat stationed in the frigid Arctic waters has now been transformed into a luxury spa. Sounds enticing? Don’t worry, unlike a typical fishing vessel, there aren’t any storage containers or noisome odor. Instead, think aromatic candles, Zen lounge, sauna, gourmet restaurant, hammam and more. If you’re lucky, you may be able to catch the mystical Northern Lights while soaking in the deck’s hot tub. Note: Vulkana, which can accommodate 12 guests, is available exclusively for group rentals. Guests can also rent the vessel for dinner, hammam sessions, seminars or short fishing trips. Contact General Manager Haugne Lauksund ([email protected]; 011-47-9063-7581) for details.
