Making of a sauna whisk

Join us on a Nature’s herb garden, forest. In silence, the trees will beacon you, sway to the rhythm of your deepest thoughts. When collecting branches to be your company in the sauna enjoy and feel Nature’s and the forest’s healing impacts.

Bundle your whisk. To get an authentic, deep experience in our Traditional Finnish sauna, light the fire and heat up the sauna. Allow the steam to envelope you, relax you or stay close to the lake scenery and mediate on the sauna bench. Cleanse yourself with your own whisk. Take a dip once in while into the cool water of Lake Päijänne, to let the cold-hot treatment pamper you. As a clean and reborn human being, now listen, stay quiet because as you close the sauna door, the gnomes are peering behind the trees waiting their invitation.
