It’s fair to say that we take our saunas seriously and while you visit here,
if you manage to avoid getting into one, please tell us how.
The forefather of saunas is the smoke sauna, a traditional form of sauna without a chimney. In the massive stove of the Himos smoke sauna we have over 1600 kg of stone to provide a long soothing bath for hours.Heating the sauna with wood is slow and has its own rituals. Come and see, hear and smell how the sauna is awaken. You will love it for sure.
Sauna is an important part of Finnish state of mind. Already 2000 years ago, the sauna has been a part of Finnish culture. The sauna as building is much more than just a place for bath. Over centuries it was used for nursing the sick, curing meat, washing clothes and fermenting malt and more. In the autumn local women gathered in a sauna to spin linen from flax.
Also the cutest sauna type in the world, barrel sauna, was invented in Koskenpää, Jämsä some 60 years ago. Not to mention the clay workshop that makes stove flowers, the felt factory that does sauna hats. Himos sauna yard provides you the best sauna experience for group. Himos Sauna Yard is great sauna experience for groups for 40-150 people!
