The Most Unique Saunas in the world

Finland - The Home of Sauna

For Finland´s population (almost 5, 5 million) there are around 3 million saunas. We have saunas all over, from studio apartments, sometimes even in offices - and naturally the ultimate Finnish sauna dream is to have your own smoke sauna by one of the 188,000 lakes. As a sauna lover, I am sharing my selection of the most unique saunas in Finland.

GONDOLA SAUNA - YOUR PRIVATE SAUNA AMONG SKIERS

While others will go to the gondolas with their skiis and snowboards, you could just bring your towel and enjoy the spectacular view from this one-of-a-kind sauna gondola in Ylläs Skiresort in Lapland.

The ride takes around 20 min and there is space for 4 guests. If you make a the ride when it is already dark you might even see the Northern Lights from there!

SAUNA BUS WITH KARAOKE

Sometimes distances are long in Finland and a great option for transportation is naturally a sauna bus. This sauna bus will take you for an unforgettable ride in the Finnish countryside - maybe you would like to stop for a swim in one of the lakes?

There is room for 10 sauna guests and if you afterwards are in the mood for singing, no worries - there is karaoke equipment in the bus!

SNOWSAUNA AT THE ARCTIC CIRCLE

Can you imagine a sauna builtof snow? At the Arctic Circle in the Arctic Snowhotel you can experience this unique sauna.

The Most Unique Saunas in the world

It is as hot as a normal sauna, but the snow produces a lot of steam (almost like smoke - nothing dangerous) so it feels as if you were in a cloud. Coolest sauna ever!

 

LOUNGE SAUNA AT THE AIRPORT

If you have some spare time at the Helsinki (or Kittilä) airport, you can try a sauna overlooking the runway.
