Guys, is it just us, or does life these days always seem to be all about keeping up with the Joneses? You’re constantly striving to stay ahead of your neighbours, that annoying guy at work who takes all the credit for everything you do and even your friends (admit it, your curated social feed is all about showing off your best life). The result? You feel like you never get to properly relax anymore. Well that’s all about to change when you visit the Floating Spa in Lake Derby in northern Tasmania. This sauna will relax and invigorate you, giving you a new lease on life!
This Finnish-style, wood-fired floating sauna is perched on Lake Derby and gives spa-goers incredible views over the surrounding trees and water. The relaxing atmosphere of the Floating Sauna is perfect for letting go of stress and relaxing with friends or family after a busy day exploring Tasmania’s wilderness.
For $45 a session, you can sit or lie on the wooden spa benches while the wood-fired heaters warm you up. After this, take a plunge into the icy lake to release natural endorphins and feel truly refreshed. Do this on repeat for an hour and you’ll feel on top of the world!
Best part about the Floating Sauna is that it’s just like those found in Finland’s famous countryside and, if you ask us, it’s a much easier option to get to rather than travelling halfway around the world! So what are you waiting for? Head on down to the Floating Sauna in Tasmania to experience complete relaxation.
