Finnish Sauna Experience

36 reviews | 491 travellers
We have adored! Pick up at our hotel, direction the sauna. Small group of 6 people. Each our sauna a real pleasure. Pierre, our French guide, explains to us that traditionally sessions of 10 to 30 minutes in the sauna (80/90°) then swimming in the frozen lake. Unique experience. Then in a sausage tasting cabin, marshmallow grilled over a wood fire and blueberry tea. A delight ! Thank you Pierre for all this information on this beautiful country.

Finnish Sauna Experience

Having been picked up from your hotel, you'll leave the city of Rovaniemi and head to a unique spot with one important goal: to relax. 

On reaching the truly authentic Lappish setting, marvel at the beautiful icy lake and its forest surroundings. A spectacular sight, especially at nightfall. Before you take a dip into the freezing waters, you'll enjoy a typically Finnish experience: a traditional sauna

A traditional Finnish sauna is a wooden cabin heated by a wood-burning stove, in which temperatures can reach up to 176–230 °F (80–110 °C). Their use is considered essential to physical and mental health in Finland, and the total number of saunas in the country equals an average of one per household. It's only right to complete the full sauna ritual: enjoying the heat before plunging into the icy lake next to it, or rolling around in the snow!

For the finishing touch, you'll enjoy a barbecue comprised of typical pork sausages, accompanied by a delicious cranberry tea. After the barbacue, you'll be taken back to your hotel in Rovaniemi.

Important information

From September to May, it may be possible to see the Aurora Borealis while you bathe in the frozen lake. However, if you do this activity in the summer months (between May and October) you'll be able to see the midnight sun instead. Either way, please bear in mind that as it is a natural phenomenon, we cannot guarantee that the Aurora Borealis will be visible.

If you need to, you can hire a swimming costume at the sauna for €15.00.

Hotel pick up

The activity will begin between 7 pm and 9 pm. After you've made your booking, we'll contact you to arrange the exact time.
