Wilderness Sauna Adventures
Finland has about 5,5 millions of inhabitants... and over 3 millions of saunas! You might have pictured a sauna as a hot room in a spa or a hotel. However we must tell you it is much more than that. To experience real sauna in our Nordic country you must do it in nature. At Earth & Sky Adventures we always find the shore of a lake or the bank of a river on the edge of the forest where we can set up our special sauna tent for the day or for the night.
Indeed we offer you two options. If you have a limited time or just want to give a try then we suggest you to book a day session. We leave in the morning so we have enough time to set up the tent and warm it up. For a couple of hours you get to discover the joys of sitting in a hot tent alternating with baths in the refreshing and pristine waters of a lake. After lunch we don't miss the opportunity to go for a hike and explore around while the sauna cools down. We get back to town in the evening.
The second option is to live the adventure during two days. You will surely make unforgettable memories as you look in the window of the sauna tent and see the midnight sun shining the whole night (in Spring and Summer) or get out and realize that the Northern lights are dancing over your head (in Fall). Besides the sauna tent we also complete our bivouac with setting a teepee tent where we can gather and rest. If you're not keen to camp then we can choose to sleep in a wilderness cabin. This option goes from around noon to noon on the following day.
Wilderness Sauna Day
Season: in Spring (June), Summer, and Fall
Duration: 1 full day
Place: in nature by a lake or a river
Physical requirements: Normal healthy heart condition, must know how to swim
Meeting point: In Kittilä, Levi or Ylläs (to arrange with the guide)
Highlights of the Activity: It is a full day dedicated to your well-being and your call to adventure! We leave in the morning so we can have enough time to put up the sauna tent and increase the temperature inside. During two or three hours you alternate those moments sitting on the wooden benches by the stove with fresh baths in the lake or the river nearby. In a very natural and quiet environment you have the privilege to rediscover the benefits of swimming in vivifying waters and soaking yourself in the steam released by the hot stones of our little sauna. During that day we also share a meal around the fireplace and explore the surroundings while the sauna is cooling down. The program ends in the beginning of the evening.
