The sauna area at AquaForum
AquaForum offers a very well equipped sauna area, in which you can relax and forget the world. Regular visits to a sauna not only improves your well-being, but relaxes the muscles and boosts the immune system. We offer regular pleasant infusions with natural, essential oils. How to take a sauna will be explained by our sauna personell.
Att the moment due to Covid restrictions there are no regular infusions!
Instead of the infusions, ice balls with essences are placed on the stones at the following times:
The earth sauna
The outdoor sauna area consists of an external with a capacity of 65-70 persons, a cooling pool with natural water, Kneipp corner, showers and WC.
The sauna is operated as a Finnish sauna with a temperature of 85°-90°C. The hot but very dry air allows the purification of the whole body. In addition, cooling down after a sauna session is an excellent vascular training and the circulation is trained, too. The external sauna meets modern standards and is also used for sauna show events. Also the regular infusions usually take place in this sauna.
Finnish sauna (Panorama-sauna)
The panorama sauna can accommodate up to 40 people and, with its unique panoramic view of the Vinschgau region, is the heart of the AquaForum sauna area. This sauna is operated with a temperature of 65°C. Due to the low temperature with low humidity, a longer stay is also possible. In the panorama sauna, relaxation and meditation are absolutely in the foreground.
The Sanarium (also called Bio-sauna) allows you to build up a sweat that is more gentle on the circulatory system. Here the temperature is between 40 and 65 degrees Celsius, however, the humidity can be up to 55% higher than in the Finnish Sauna. A sauna in the sanarium lasts for a about 20 minutes and if used regularly, it is able to regulate the blood pressure.
In the big room of the infra-red cabine from Physiotherm there is space to sit and to lie down, the boards adjust to the body and give a sense of well-being. The infra-red rays heat up the body on the inside and loosens up tense muscles. The soft heat can help with back pains, muscle contractions, diseases of the respiratory systems and acne. Sportsmen and women rely on the power of infra-red and use its radiation to warm up bevor or to relax after the training.
The Caldarium has established itself as it boosts the healing process with colds. Already ancient Romans appreciated the relaxing effects of the steaming warmth, which is excellent for hair, skin and respiratory organs. Temperatures between 40 to 45 degrees Celsius and a humidity of nearly 100% provide ideal conditions to invigorate the body and to alleviate rheumatic pains.
Cooling down after a sauna can be done on the open-air terrace. For a gentle cooling down it is advisable to cool the respiratory passages. This is best done on the open-air terrace breathing in the fresh air of the Val Venosta ("Vinschger" air) and to enjoy the astonishing view over the Val Venosta valley and its stumming mountain ranges.
Cold-water pool & Kneipp-pool
Those Who dare to dive into the really cold water (between 8 and 12 degrees Celsius) will get a thorough cooling down. Those who get goose bumps already at the thought of it have the option to use the cold water shower instead.
The Kneipp-pool with its interplay of cold and warm is ideal to get the circulation going.
