What are we going to do

Finns are the real sauna masters. But there is so much more about sauna bathing than just sitting in the heat and sweating like a pig. Experience sauna with me in a historical place and I will guide you through the most popular everyday activity in Finnish culture.

The lumberjacks from Rönölä built their sauna in a scenic spot right at the lake Luosu. The large, rustic wood heated sauna offers relaxing moments in moist heat in the same way as it did in the old times. This is a truly unique place to ease off from the modern world.

I am happy to introduce you to the beautiful lumberjack mansion and all different sauna types. I know a lot of stories to tell as well as the health aspects of sauna. The tender, moist heat helps to relax your muscles and free your mind. You get the chance to cool down by swimming in the lake, dipping in a hole in the ice (winter), rolling in the fresh snow (winter) or just enjoying a drink in the cool air outside.

- 20 minutes guided tour, that will take you back to the old lumberjack times
- about 2 hours sauna and storytelling
- traditional Finnish snacks and drinks (alcoholfree)
- towel, seat cover and crocs slippers

Note: We go to sauna wearing towels or swimsuits. If you feel comfortable with being naked, that’s ok too. Sauna might not be suitable for you if you suffer from a heart condition.

Pick up for up to 4 people can be arranged on request. For more people transfer needs to be organized differently. I can help you order a taxi.

Experience available in English, German or French.

I am a Swiss living in Finnish Lapland, far above the Arctic Circle. Coming here 6 years ago to work as a guide, I soon discovered my interest and passion about the Finnish culture and lifestyle in Lapland. I am very happy to share my passion with you.

As a multilingual all rounder you will find me usually working in an ice hotel, at a reindeer farm or even as an elf for Santa.
