The sauna is the pride and joy of the Finns. The Finnish summer holiday home has an entire culture built around it and almost every one of them has a sauna as standard. In fact, there are over two million saunas in Finland for only five million Finns; that’s around one for each household! But Lake Saimaa is special. The sauna is only half the story; the other half is the lake.
The heat of the sauna and the lakes of Saimaa – a match made in heaven
After all, what good is the heat of the sauna without your own private beach and a lake to cool off in? And where’s the sense in swimming if you have no sauna to warm you up, or to wash in? The sauna and Lake Saimaa go hand in hand together. To experience one without the other is to miss something special!
It’s true for whatever season you’re here. Whether you’ve been swimming under Lake Saimaa’s blue skies in summer or walking on its frozen surface in winter, the sauna is the perfect remedy. Following any number of adventures in the Finnish countryside, the sauna is relaxing and health-boosting, refreshing body and soul.
