Sauna and cold plunge pools at Hebden Bridge Hostel, Hebden Bridge Until 31 August 2024 Tickets from £10.00 — Book now

   Hebden Bridge is a cornucopia of pleasurable experiences and one of the latest additions to the town’s offering of mindful activities is iglu sauna, a Nordic style sauna and plunge pool experience. This haven of temperature controlled calm has scenic views over the Calder Valley and offers a spa experience where you can feel integrated in nature rather than in a sterile white enamel tiled environment.


Just a short (but steep) walk from Hebden Bridge train station or a two minute drive from the town centre, you’ll find iglu Sauna nestled into the side of Nutclough Woods. Using the principles and techniques of Nordic-style Sauna culture you can appreciate this particularly beautiful part of the world whilst treating your body to some tlc.


iglu currently offers three types of sessions: Sauna, Spa Style and Quiet. You have access to the sauna, plunge pools, fireside seating, changing rooms and showers no matter which type of session you attend. If you’re looking for something a bit more special than the hot-cold-hot experience the spa sessions are well worth checking out. After your first 15 mins in the sauna, you will be invited to choose from a selection of himalayan body salt scrubs with different aromas to enjoy before re-entering the sauna and watching them dissolve into your skin. You’ll then apply a mud mask to your face and let that work some derma magic before washing everything off in the outdoor showers and enjoying how radiant your skin feels.


The quiet sessions are dedicated spaces for a meditative and serene experience to be enjoyed by a mixed group without the pressure to speak. These currently take place on Wednesday’s and Thursday’s at 3pm.


The sauna is a mixed space and holds up to eight people at any one time. However, private sessions can also be booked via their website. All you need to bring is swimwear, footwear, a water bottle and two towels. Compared to other spa experiences, iglu is incredibly fairly priced whilst still offering a beautifully restorative time.
