If you want to have an authentic Finnish experience, you will not want to miss the sauna! We will head to an Arctic forest, which is about 20 km from Rovaniemi, and you will experience a traditional firewood sauna and a hot tub in the forest.
You will head to a Lappish forest 20 km away from the city center, where a traditional firewood sauna and a hot tub is waiting for you. Mild heat lets you unwind in the warm wooden interior, making you release the tensions of the day.
Cooling down the Finnish way is to dip in the lake or throw yourself into the powdery snow, which makes you feel better, as you go back into the warm, steaming sauna. For a more unique experience, try a sauna built with ice. You can also relax in the hot tub surrounded by snow-covered landscapes, where you can watch the sky above for the magical Northern Lights.
After the sauna, continue searching for the dancing lights in the frozen lake while enjoying hot drinks and gingerbread by the fire.
