Immerse yourself in the Finnish way of life with this authentic Finnish sauna experience. Head out into the natural landscape to visit a lakeside sauna complex, where you can experience a modern sauna, a traditional smoke sauna, and a dip in the icy lake to cool off. Learn about why and how the sauna experience is at the heart of Finnish culture and meet some locals at leisure. Use of bath towels included.

What to expect?

  • This 3-hour shared sauna experience including return transportation from your Helsinki accommodation gives you an opportunity to truly live like a local, in the ultimate comfort of a traditional Finnish sauna.
  • Your shared excursion starts with either an afternoon or evening pick-up from your city center hotel and you will be taken to a selected sauna (there are several options depending on the season; subject to availability). Once at the venue, your guide will talk you through the sauna tradition in Finland and gives you a briefing of the sauna etiquette and instructions.
  • Once in, enjoy the purifying heat of the sauna by trying a “löyly”, a Finnish word for steam from the stove that is the spirit of the sauna. Top it off with a “vasta”, a bunch of birch twigs to comfortably whisk on your body to intensify the warmth.
  • Nature and sauna will lower your blood pressure and relax your mind and body; more than a form of entertainment, it takes you on a trip to yourself like meditation.
