Immerse yourself in a traditional Finnish pastime—the sauna—on this private tour in Helsinki. Get out in the natural landscape surrounding the city and learn about the rituals and traditions surrounding this quintessentially Finnish form of recreation. This private tour ensures personalized attention and a flexible itinerary.

What to expect?

  • This 3-hour private sauna experience including return transportation from your Helsinki accommodation gives you an opportunity to truly live like a local, in the ultimate comfort of a traditional Finnish sauna.
  • Your excursion starts with a 6 pm pick-up from your city center hotel and you will be taken to a selected sauna (there are several options depending on the season; subject to availability). Once at the venue, your guide will talk you through the sauna tradition in Finland and gives you a briefing of the sauna etiquette and instructions.
  • Once in, enjoy the purifying heat of the sauna by trying a “löyly”, a Finnish word for steam from the stove that is the spirit of the sauna. Top it off with a “vasta”, a bunch of birch twigs to comfortably whisk on your body to intensify the warmth.
  • Nature and sauna will lower your blood pressure and relax your mind and body; more than a form of entertainment, it takes you on a trip to yourself like meditation.
