Practical Information


The Well is the largest spa in the Nordic region, just 15 minutes from Oslo. The Well is built on continental bathing traditions with natural nudity. You are welcome to wear swimwear, *but in saunas and steam baths, swimwear is not allowed. In saunas and steam baths, you can choose to cover yourself with a towel or a peshtemal.

*Every Tuesday is swimwear day, and it is mandatory to wear swimwear throughout the entire spa facility.



You check in at the spa reception and provide your contact information. Please note that valid ID must be provided at check-in. The age limit at The Well is 18 years old - 16 years old if you are coming with your parents. 

When you check in, you will receive an electronic wristband that you use as a key for your locker and as payment during your visit. You deliver back the wristband when you check out.

Once you have checked in, you can make your way to the changing rooms, taking with you a bathrobe, towels for the showers and sauna, and a pair of slippers.


Changing Rooms

There are separate changing rooms for men and women.

The lockers are electronic, and you use your electronic wristband as a key.

Once you have changed and locked your locker, you make your way to the showers. Please remove any swimwear when showering. You don't need to bring any products with you, as every shower has The Well's signature products – shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and facial cleanser.

After showering, put on your bathrobe and slippers and bring your towels with you into the spa area.
