During this experience, you will get to discover the beauty of Sipoonkorpi national park with a professional wilderness guide. The guide will lead you through forested trails stopping along the way to learn about Finnish wildlife and nature. Our trail leads us to a rocky vista overlooking a freshwater lake where we will have a campfire barbecue.

After a delicious lunch, we will continue our walk to the smoke sauna (A total of 6km). Time to relax, go for a swim, and enjoy a traditional Finnish smoke sauna.

As we sit in the sauna which is heated to around 80-100 degrees Celsius, water is thrown on the rocks - this is called lรถylรถ. This sends a wave of heat throughout the sauna, which in turn brings relaxation!

After the sweat, comes the swim! We will step outside to cool down and breathe in the fresh air. The sauna is located next to a freshwater lake so dipping in the lake is highly encouraged and extremely refreshing! After our dip, we will head back into the sauna to warm up again. With each dip comes more pleasure and we believe three swims is the magic number.

If you are brave enough to join us in the winter we will go for the famous arctic dip in the ice water!

About Taiga Times - the Doer

Taiga Times is a nature travel company from Helsinki. At the core of our calling, Taiga Times is about connections. Connections with people and people with nature. Our love for the outdoors, travelling and meeting fellow explorers has forged the trail we walk today. ๐Ÿ‘ฃ

Taiga Times was founded in 2019 by a Finnish-Canadian couple (Kiia & Jeff) whose greatest travel experiences have come from the wilderness. Finland is known for its nature and it's everywhere, even in the capital city of Helsinki. Still, it can be a bit difficult for travelers to explore nature by themselves, especially if they would like to visit the more off the beaten path destinations. ๐ŸŒฒ

It is our goal to share this beautiful and pristine nature with everyone who visits Finland. ๐Ÿ˜Š
