Sauna and swimming

On cold and dark winter days bath in a Finnish sauna is memorable and unique experience. There are many different saunas. For example you can enjoy a Finnish sauna in Ylläs in the midst of the fells at Lake Äkäslompolo. We also have Finland’s highest sauna on top of the Ylläs fell. And the one and the only Sauna Gondola in the world. Traditional smoke saunas can be found at Rönölä, in Lake Luosujärvi. In the spa of Lapland Hotels Saaga there is both a traditional Finnish sauna and steam sauna.
