There is no more genuine Nordic experience than enjoying a traditional Finnish sauna in an idyllic Lakeland setting, followed by a dip into the cool, refreshing waters.
Sauna is more than a tradition here — it is a way of life and there are more saunas in Finland than cars! The Finns are testament to the sauna’s health benefits and, of course, are well known for the practice of breaking through the ice during the long winters in order to enjoy their post-sauna plunge!
Our chosen destination is a fully facilitated traditional sauna in the inspirational Nuuksio National Park, yet still only a short journey from the city center. The unique sauna sit on the shores of the lake, in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Experience a traditional sauna and enjoy the healing benefits, peace and pleasure that the Nordics swear by. Plucked up for a dip in the frozen lake or an intimate touch with snow pile when winter comes. Don't get addicted!
After experiencing this ageless practice, with skin glowing, settle down to some real Finnish food cooked on the open grill by the lake, and lose yourself in this most stunning of locations. It doesn’t get much better than this!
