Ice sauna is available on advance reservation only and for private parties only.

The way to learn about Finnish Sauna

For Finns sauna is an institution, something very essential in life and a must-have. But why do the Finns love their sauna baths so much, is it not just sitting in a hot room?

Your authorized sauna guide will tell you about the Finnish sauna and its health benefits and traditions. The sauna guide will advice you on how to make the perfect “löyly” happen, that is the steam in the sauna and also advice you to the use of a body scrub made of Lappish wild herbs.

Between the heats you can cool off by taking a dip in the refreshing lake, or ice-hole if winter or eve rolling in the snow in your birthday suit!

A generous sauna snack and herbal tea are served in the sauna lounge, where you can relax and cool off after the sauna. 

The total duration is 3 hrs. SaunaTour for parties less than 20 persons takes place in Rukan Salonki Starsauna. 

SaunaTour prices: 
Min 2 persons 95 € / person
Min 4 persons 75 € / person
