Overview

If you are in Finland, you are in the land of saunas. With a population of 5.5 million people, Finland is home to around 3 million saunas.

Highlights

  • Enjoy an authentic Finnish smoke sauna
  • Swim in a freshwater lake
  • Extremely relaxing and laidback experience
  • Do the most Finnish thing possible

During the excursion, you can visit and experience what a true smoke sauna feels like. It is a highly esteemed sauna experience by the Finnish people. The sauna is heated to 80 to 100°C. As you sweat it out in the sauna, water gets thrown on the rocks – a process referred to Loyly. The process helps send a wave of steam and heat across the sauna. This traditional sauna experience will help in bringing you relaxation, flushing toxins, relieving stress, clearing up your skin, and helping with muscle fitness. 

After you’ve sweated out all your toxins, you can enjoy a fun-filled swimming experience. You can step outside to cool down and breathe the fresh air. You’ll come across a beautiful lake right outside the sauna where you can go for a lovely swim. If you happen to be brave enough, you can even indulge in the classic Arctic dip. Go ahead and take ample photographs!

Information

The world-renowned Finnish spa is an essential part of Finnish culture. The sauna is not only the perfect place to relax with close friends and family but it offers the possibility for both physical and mental relaxation. Since you will be indulging in a refreshing swimming experience in the lake right after your sauna, it is recommended to bring your swimming clothes and towel. Smoke saunas tend to be available for both men and women, so it is highly recommended to take along your swimwear.

It is recommended that you dress according to the weather. Hiking shoes are the perfect choice. However, you can manage with sneakers or walking shoes as well. Also, consider taking some extra clothes – like a waterproof jacket or a warm pullover. If it is raining, you will have access to ponchos as well. On the other hand, if it is warm outside, then you should make sure to pack a water bottle. 

With this unique sauna experience, you’ll get an opportunity to immerse yourself in the Finnish way of living. With this tour, you’ll also get to head out into the natural landscape and visit the lakeside sauna. Here, you get the experience of a modern sauna along with a traditional smoke sauna.
