The winter swimming sauna is open  as follows :

The opening hours of the sauna are divided to shifts with web page seat booking. One shift is 1 hour and in addition dressing&shower time before and after. If there are free seats in the sauna before or after your shift, you can extend your sauna session. Similarly you can also use the other sauna, if there is space.  If you don’t book a seat beforehand, you can come ”with a risk” and the sauna carer makes the booking to the next shift with seats available.

Sauna is a mixed sauna, swim suit mandatory.

Big dressing rooms with showers and toilets and some lockers are about 100 m from the sauna (USE THESE DURING CORONA TIME).
Small dressing rooms without showers are located nearby (DURING CORONA TIME THESE ARE ONLY FOR THE KEY HOLDERS). There are also small lockers for valuable stuff (e.g. mobiles, wallets, keys), please share one with your friends.

Welcome to this cosy ”summer cottage” like public sauna with traditional wood heated stove. Enjoy also the great landscape of Suolijärvi, cold water of the lake, snow and good sauna company. Before your sauna session, you can make some walking in the nature trails of Suolijärvi/Hervantajärvi.
