DESCRIPTION

A VERY LOCAL EXPERIENCE IN THE WILDERNESS! 

Enjoy a very local experience! Your guide will take you into deep forests to a wilderness cabin with a log sauna. The traditional cabin has no electricity or running water ; the small lake and nature around is providing everything it needs! The place is beautiful and extremely peaceful – perfect for a relaxing moment!

Your guide will lit the wood-burner in the sauna and give you more instructions how to use it in the very Finnish way. There is also a pontoon that leads directly to the lake : if you are brave enough to go in the water, in summer it might get warm but in autumn it will be refreshing in any case! It is very healthy to alternate hot sauna with cold water (or at least cold air).

Sauna towels, soaps, birch tar oil and other equipment needed will be provided by your guide (please bring your swimsuit if you need to ; or sauna can also be naked like Finns usually do…). The experience is always private and the guide will give you all privacy needed. He / she will prepare a local snack around the fire while you enjoy the traditional sauna.

We offer three departures for this private experience :
– 13:00,
– 16:30,
– 19:30.

About the afternoon session (13:00) : The early afternoon session can be extended by one hour to enjoy some SUP-boarding while the sauna is heating.

About the evening session (19:30) : You may enjoy the late evening sunset and/or midnight sun colors (from late May until late July). The location of the sauna is perfect for Northern Lights spotting from late august onward when the weather conditions allow it. The lake is oriented north with absolutely no light pollution! Please note that the northern lights is up to Mother Nature, and is not guaranteed. If you are interested in a specific northern light hunting tour, we recommend our photography hunt.

WILLING TO HAVE AN OVERNIGHT STAY?

We usually offer this experience for a few hours with a guide. However, the main building of the cottage is equiped with a small kitchen and six beds, perfect for a summer overnight!
