Vocal sauna

Enjoy tunes of the Finnish vocal tradition in the warm embrace of the sauna

Get closer to your roots in the vocal sauna. Let yourself be carried away by the ancient tunes in the dusky sauna. Immerse yourself in traditional Finnish rune singing and relax.

In the wood heated warm löyly (steam) of the sauna, time stands still, silence empowers you and you are reconnected with your inner peace.

In the sauna you can leave your daily routines behind you. Feel free to use your own voice and some easily played instruments to join the enchanting rhythm of the ancient songs. After this experience you will always greet a sauna with respect and enjoy a soft, fragrant löyly.

As a souvenir, you will carry with you several old tunes to which you can sing any poems that follow the trochee metre of the traditional Kalevala poems.

You will also learn to whisk yourself with a sauna whisk specially made for you of the twigs of many different trees. You can take the whisk with you as a memory of the sauna bathing.

This sauna treatment suits all regardless of age, sex or singing and playing skills.


1.5-2.5 hours; 3-8 person.


The vocal sauna treatment is performed in Finnish or English, except for the songs which are in Finnish only. They are explained in English.
