One highlight of this experience is the unique ice-sauna. The sauna itself is built from huge ice-blocks, the benches are of wood, so you can sit and relax while enjoying the very moist heat of this special sauna. And yes, it is a warm sauna, even if built of ice.

There is an ice-hole in the lake for the brave ones that wish to have their adrenalin going and also an outdoor whirlpool for relaxing under the northern sky.
After the saunas you feel relaxed and fresh – and hungry. The delicious wild food dinner is served in the panorama lounge of Pyhäpiilo. The 3-course menu is made of local seasonal ingredients and features wild food. Beverages are available on spot (not included in the price).
