Welcome to refresh yourself in the gentle steam of the sauna. Central Finland is known as Finland’s Sauna Region – and with good reason, as the sauna culture of Jämsä, located on the southern edge of Central Finland, goes back a long way. Many summer cottages in Himos-Jämsä have their own sauna, and the rental options include splendid group sauna facilities, traditional waterside saunas, and atmospheric smoke saunas. In addition, the village of Juokslahti, in Jämsä region, is Finland’s only historic Sauna Village. The sauna is an integral part of Finnish life and culture. For centuries, saunas have offered us healing warmth and peace of mind. There is a lack of urgency in the sauna, there you can enjoy the warmth of the sauna in peace. Everyday worries and stress are forgotten in the sauna, its heat softens muscle tension and gives you a good night’s sleep. Experience a traditional Finnish sauna and relax in the sauna steam!
