Designed with ancient bathing facilities and traditional Nordic spas in mind, Nature Folk instantly offers refuge to its guests via its use of natural stone, white oak and soft linens.

It consists of an infrared therapy salt room and two private spa pods that include dry saunas, steam saunas, cedar plunges, heated river stone beds and hot tubs. The main goal at LBC is to help people find freedom in the forest through authentic healing spaces.
