Did you know, that spending time in the forest regularly had been proven to lower blood pressure, detox your body and improve you over all mood? Did you know, that Finland is home to more than 3 million saunas: electric saunas, wood-burning saunas, smoke saunas, peat saunas – you name it! Authentic Finnish sauna is a natural place for overall wellness and revival.
In the Lahti region we have local professional nature guides to take you into the forest to pick berries, mushrooms or herbs, and learn more about the benefits of nature in everyday life. We offer a wide range of sauna options, from hotel saunas to cottage saunas, 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.
Choose programs of your interest and deepen your understanding of Finnish nature, culture, traditions. The idea is that, over five-ten days, you do relaxing things and fill your body and mind with pure air and positive thoughts and you have left stresses of real life far behind you. Once you’ve spent a few days exploring… go offline and slip into a meditative state!
