This tour gives you a genuinely Finnish well-being experience in a fun way! Listen to the story of the sauna and learn about the unique sauna culture of Finland. There isn't anything more Finnish like the sauna. For five million Finns we have more than three million saunas!
We will start from your locations - a port, a hotel, railway station, airport or a landmark. Then we will walk or take the tram or bus to one of the saunas in the centre. There are many to choose from: Allas Sea pool by the Market Square, the modern Löyly sauna which was chosen among the hundred most interesting places in the world by Time Magazine, or one of the more traditional city saunas.
We will also enjoy the great cultural sights of Helsinki along the way; I am an authorized Helsinki guide and a traditional sauna expert.
About Arja - the Doer
Hello! My name is Arja and I really enjoy helping visitors get the best out of their trip to Helsinki - which I believe to be one of the best cities in the world! I am a professional Helsinki Tourist Guide qualified to guide throughout the whole of Helsinki providing quality private tours customized to your requirements.
In a previous life I was a tour guide in Greece, Spain and Italy so I am more than experienced with both large and small groups. I am especially interested in Scandinavian history, art, architecture, design, cycling, hiking, meeting people and. . . . sauna! My tours can be tailored to suit your needs and interests. Day trips with sauna experience to surrounding countryside or the National Park of Nuuksio can also be arranged on request.
I am positive and friendly. I enjoy meeting new people and do everything I can to help guests to make the most of their visit in Helsinki. I have been told by guests on my tours that I have a great sense of humour and really know my stuff! I hope you will agree with them. If you are an elderly person or have children with you, no problems, we will discover Helsinki "your" way together.
If you are looking for a local guide to provide you with an informative, entertaining and affordable private tour of Helsinki, look no further! Contact me and I can help ensure you have a memorable visit to Finland!
