One can find a lot of information about sauna and the bathing process from online, yet nothing can beat your own experience. Listen to your body, try different types of saunas or the same type of a sauna but in different places, and learn what feels the best for you. After all, there are as many ways of enjoying the sauna, as there are people who go there.

To start your multi-sensory journey to the most essential part of the Finnish culture, have a look at the specially selected places in the region of Central Finland, which will make your first (or perhaps thousand first) sauna experience unforgettable. Take your family and friends, or enjoy the sauna on your own – the choices are countless.
