• Enjoy sauna with locals in a safe environment
• A truly local experience with food, sauna, and swimming!

Warming up to Traditions

As we sit in the sauna which is heated to around 80-100 degrees Celsius, water is thrown on the rocks - this is called löylö. This sends a wave of heat throughout the sauna, which in turn brings relaxation!

Sit, Sweat, Swim, Repeat!

After the sweat, comes the swim! We will step outside to cool down and breathe in the fresh air. The sauna is located next to a freshwater lake so dipping in the lake is highly encouraged and extremely refreshing! After our dip, we will head back into the sauna to warm up again. With each dip comes more pleasure and we believe three swims is the magic number.

If you are brave enough to join us in the winter we will go for the famous arctic dip in the ice water!
