Finnish Sauna Tradition for Happiness and Health

Sauna is the core essence of Finnish lifestyle. One might claim it is the key factor to the  Happiness rate of Finns, indeed! Nothing compares to the relaxing effect of löyly as we call the heat spreading from the saunas stove. Not to talk about a refreshing dip into the lake in between the warming up rounds.

Lentiira holiday Village’e sauna building embodies a traditional smoke sauna and neat electrical sauna both equipped with modern showers. The spacious chill room features fireplace and small kitchen corner that makes it suitable for relaxed soirées.

Birch punch - or vasta as we call it - is traditional self-healing method related to sauna culture. Making vasta means collecting suitable branches from birch trees, preparing them in a particular manner and in the end binding it all together. Vasta-making workshops are available in June and July.
