Smoke saunas 

Since the time of Kalevala, saunas have been important part of cultural heritage in the Eastern Finland. It's way of life, a place for physical and spiritual cleansing, for bonding with each other, for getting bare in all senses of the word and entering the core of humanity. Smoke sauna  (Savusauna) is the oldest type of Finnish sauna. Heating smoke sauna takes several hours and is very labor intensive, but on the other hand - the experience is said to be superior to all other saunas. The scent of smoke, silence, darkness and relaxing atmosphere is something you have to experience at least once during your holiday -preferably even more often!
