The peat-roofed Smoke Sauna is located in Puhos, Kitee, North Karelia. Our skillful sauna elf warms the smoke sauna ready for bathing. It requires several hours of heating, knowledge, and skill to heat just this smoke sauna and to make bathing as pleasant as possible. The smoke sauna is disposable and never heated further during bathing. The sauna elf makes sure that it is pleasant to go to the smoke sauna. The elf puts lights and candles on and takes care that bench covers and towels can be found on the sauna terrace. A large amount of stones in the stove enables a long-lasting sauna and gives a variety of gentle steams throughout the evening. Throw only hot or very warm water into the stones of the stove and there will be enough steam for as long as possible. This smoke sauna has underfloor heating and a hand shower that provides both hot and cold water. There is a hair and body shampoo near the hand shower.

Wooden paths lead from the smoke sauna to the log dugout, which serves as a changing room and a place to spend the evening. The dugout is a unique and very comfortable log room built into the hill. There is nice to spend the evening. You can find there a long table, sofa bed, fireplace, a refrigerator, cold water from faucet and kitchen tops and a cupboard. The shutters in the dugout are openable and offer views of lake Orivesi and the evening sun. Next to the dugout is a wooden building with firewood storage, a dressing area, and a toilet with appropriate dry toilet.

Wooden paths in the other direction lead you to the pier. You can swim in the lake Orivesi around the year. It is not allowed to jump into the lake because there are rocks in the lake. The end of the pier is about 2 meters deep. In winter you can swim in the lake because we keep the swimming area open with a pump. The lakeshore and pier are shared with potential tenants of the Main House.

The maximum group size is 15 people.

Mahtava retki! Milloin vaan uudestaan❤❤


Alku jännityksen jälkeen aivan mahtava kokemus! Tainalle kiitokset hyvästä opetuksesta. Ihana paikka, kiitos Sisko!


Hyvä retki, lähtisin toistekin! Alussa meni suhteellisesti paljon aikaa turvallisuuteen ja varusteiden esittelyihin ennenkuin päästiin vesille, mutta mukana oli ensikertalainen eli oli ymmärrettävää. Opin itsekin paljon uutta.


Erittäin opettavainen, mukava, hyvin järjestetty ja onnistunut melontaretki.
