  • SaunaSauna is something you simply cannot miss!

    If possible, visit a traditional wood-heated sauna.

    • In the summer, swim in a lake after sauna.• You can dip into a lake in the winter, too… but… it’s cold!

    • You can spice up the experience with vihta,(or vasta) (= a large whisk made of birch branches).

    • You use it to gently hit yourself or your fellow sauna-goers (this is good for blood circulation).

    • For hardcore enthusiasts, there is the smoke sauna,which is a sauna without a chimney: after the sauna isheated and the fire put out, the smoke is ventilated out,and the sauna is ready for use (works on residual heat).
