Visit a floating sauna in Oslo

What better way to enjoy Oslo than from the seafront? Here´s a little guide to the floating saunas of KOK.

Locals love this, and visitors too. Heating up in a steaming sauna before taking a fresh dip in the fjord will make memories that last.

KOK means to cook in English.

It’s both meant to symbolize it being boiling hot and also points to the phrase Now we’re cooking! As in – now we’re having a good time. And we sure hope you do!

What to pack

  • Your swimwear!

  • 2 towels, one to sit on (mandatory) and one to dry yourself with.

  • Bag for wet swimwear/towels.

  • Big bottle of water. In case you forget, we sell water at KOK too.

  • A small pouch for jewelry if you have it. It can get hot and burn your skin, so either leave at home or in a  pouch or pocket.

  • A tip is to wear swimwear under your clothes when you arrive, to save time changing.

  • And also to wear loose clothes. Tight jeans are a real pain to put on after sauna. 

Where to find KOK

KOK has two locations in Oslo, both with great views of some of Oslo’s most beautiful sites!

Our first sauna was placed at Langkaia in 2018, and due to high demand we have expanded to building a sauna island with 5 saunas surrounding this magical place. The saunas have a view of The Opera House and The Munch Museum, and there are plenty of restaurants to check out after going to the sauna. You´ll get hungry, you see!

In Aker Brygge we have 4 saunas on a pier, with a view over the near archipelago in Oslo and The Akershus Fortress. The bustling vibe of Aker Brygge make it a perfect place to be both before and after the sauna. 

Where is KOK

Our cancellation policy

Your booking can only be canceled or changed if you have bought the cancellation insurance for PRIVATKOK, the private sauna and KOKCRUISE, the cruise. Changes can be made up to 12 hours before with a link in the confirmation e-mail. 

FELLESKOK, the shared sauna, can neither be cancelled or changed. So make sure you booke the right time and location. 

Going to the sauna

Before the visit

It´s wise to drink water before you come to KOK to avoid dehydration.

Food and drinks

In addition to water, you are also welcome to enjoy alcohol at PRIVATKOK and KOKCRUISE. At FELLESKOK, the shared sauna, alcohol is not allowed. And for the first two, we ask for moderation and a maximum of two units per person. This is for your own and others’ well-being and safety. Our sauna masters have the right to remove visibly intoxicated guests from the boat. Spirits is not allowed at KOK. Avoid drinks with strong dyes, such as red wine, Aperol and Coke, as this leaves marks on the wood.

At Langkaia we have our own light beer for sale, which leaves no marks, and doesn´t make the head bang the next day.  

Food in the sauna is not allowed, but you can bring snacks etc. which can be enjoyed outdoors or in the front room.

The sauna

Our saunas are wood-fired and provide very good heat, so most people who visit us take a dip in the sea after a while. This is of course completely voluntary, but the feeling that sits in body and soul afterwards is hard to beat.

The sauna is built for 10 people, and some would prefer to be fewer for more leg room.

Facilities on board the sauna

  • A stereo system with wireless connection.


  • A small, shared changing room where you can store your belongings.


  • A ladder – if you don´t feel like jumping.


  • At Langkaia we have cold showers outside and at the saunas in Aker Brygge we provide a simple rinsing option.

  • No toilets on either location. 

During your visit

When arriving at KOK, your group will be met by a pleasant sauna master. They will give you an introduction to the boat and the sauna, and ensure that there is wood and water for the stones during the entire visit. If you have any questions along the way, you can ask the sauna master. All of our sauna masters have lifesaving courses in water.

If you are going on a cruise, one of our skippers will take you on a trip out into the fjord. The skipper is well-known in the area and, depending on the weather and wind, they will find routes that are worth experiencing.

The team at KOK are good photographers and are happy to help you get the perfect picture to share on social media or with others.
