Wellness & Sauna
Authentic Finnish sauna is a natural place for overall wellness and revival. We offer a wide range of sauna options with guidance and food. In the winter, the experience naturally includes a dip into a frozen lake. If you want to explore even more, we recommend traditional Finnish sauna treatments or even Sauna Yoga. Nature is also an essential part of Finnish wellness. Our professional nature guides take you into the forest to pick berries, mushrooms or herbs, and learn more about the benefits of nature in everyday life.
