Finnish Sauna & Wellbeing

Welcome to experience the authentic Finnish Sauna with us! Ruka Safaris has several saunas and get-together places for groups of all sizes to spend an evening.

We recommend IISAKKI'S TRADITIONAL SAUNA for groups under 24 persons. Iisakki's lakeside sauna has been awarded with the Authentic Finnish Sauna Experience certificate, and chosen as Visit Finland's TOP25 star products for wellbeing as part of Saunatour.

Our AIVORIIHI-SAUNA is suitable for groups with 30 persons and KONTIOSAUNA for the evenings in the restaurant Kontioluola. PAPIN SAUNA is suitable for small groups or as an extra sauna for bigger groups in Iisakki's sauna. Iisakki's traditional sauna and Aivoriihi-sauna include an outdoor jacuzzi. Saunas are located in Iisakki Village, 6km from Ruka.

Wellbeing is an important part of Finnish sauna experience. You can add Saunayoga or Saunapilates into your sauna evening. Saunayoga combines quietness of Finnish sauna and six simple yoga moves which relax and strenghten your body. In saunapilates we focus on strenghtening the body with pilates techniques. Temperature in the sauna for saunayoga and pilates is 50 degrees Celcius.

Ask also for massages and body treatments to be included in your sauna experience. Treatments are executed in cooperation with Ruka Green Pavilion.

You can also order wild food sauna snacks and meals to complete your sauna experience.

Wellbeing for your back! Saunapilates focuses on body posture and preventing back problems.
