This program takes you to a walking trip and then authentic and cozy wilderness sauna by the lake in Nuuksio National Park.
This sauna program takes you to a Finnish wilderness sauna in Nuuksio National Park,. We will pick you up from Helsinki city center and take you with a minibus to Nuuksio National Park. In Nuuksio we first walk a short hike (ca. 1,5 km) to an authentic wilderness sauna in the middle of the national park. We prepare and heat the sauna together. Wintertime we can even make hole to the ice for ice swimming. The guide will tell about Finnish sauna and you will learn about Finnish sauna tradition.
When the sauna gets heated you can sit down by the lake and experience the beauty and the silence of the nature. Before sauna there is time for outdoor activities; forest walk – late summer and autumn time searching for berries and mushroom. Wintertime there is a possibility to make a walk in snow-covered forest or over the frozen lake with snowshoes.
After sauna you can enjoy food prepared by the open fire. Finnish snack and sausages with fresh coffee made on open fire is a delicious ending for your sauna experience. In the end we have a short hike back to the car and drive to Helsinki City Center.
