SAUNA FOR EVERYONE

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.

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.
In the autumn local women gathered in a sauna to spin linen from flax – in company, the tedious work seemed much lighter.

Sauna is kind of a big thing for Himos and Jämsä. Alone in the resort of Himos there is an indoor sauna in every holiday cottage, which counts up close to 500 that are being rented by Himos Holiday.

In addition to Sauna Village  there are group saunas that are heated by order, saunas on the boat and 3 sauna manufacturers in the town.

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.
After the sauna is heated you can have a bath in it, in the winter the bravest can even have a dip in the ice-hole or roll in the snow!
