This 3-hour shared sauna experience including return transportation from your Helsinki accommodation gives you an opportunity to truly live like a local, in an ultimate comfort of a traditional Finnish sauna.
Your shared excursion starts with either an afternoon or evening pick-up from your city centre hotel and you will be taken to a selected sauna (there are several options depending on the season; subject to availability). Once at the venue, your guide will talk you through the sauna tradition in Finland and gives you a briefing of the sauna etiquette and instructions.
Once in, enjoy the purifying heat of the sauna by trying a “löyly”, a Finnish word for steam from the stove that is the spirit of the sauna. Top it off with a “vasta”, a bunch of birch twigs to comfortably whisk on your body to intensify the warmth.
Nature and sauna will lower your blood pressure and relax your mind and body; more than a form of entertainment, it takes you to a trip to yourself like meditation. Nature and sauna are more than an entertainment, it takes you to a trip to yourself like meditation.
