Live a traditional experience: experience a Finnish sauna and enjoy hunting for the Northern Lights from a frozen lake!

In Finland, the sauna is a real art of living and a social ritual followed by more than 90% of the population, at least once a week.

After a transfer from your accommodation in Rovaniemi or directly from our partner's agency, you will take the road towards the Lapland forest.

You will return to your sauna, previously heated 6 hours in advance, and begin your experience.

Your guide will explain to you how to use it like a local.

During your session, if you want to cool off, you can experience a typical Finnish tradition: bathe in an icy lake or dive into fresh, powdery snow.

After testing this custom of the country, you will follow your guide for an unforgettable hunt for the Northern Lights. You position yourself in the middle of a lake to admire the starry sky and wait for the Northern Lights, all accompanied by a hot blueberry juice.

You will then be taken back to Rovaniemi after an extraordinary experience.
