Rovaniemi: Private Forest Sauna, Northern Lights, & BBQ Trip

1. Rovaniemi: Private Forest Sauna, Northern Lights, & BBQ Trip

Head to an Arctic forest roughly 20 kilometers from the city center to experience the traditional firewood sauna in the forest. The experience of the sauna is such an important part of Finnish culture, that it can’t be compared to anything else. For centuries, it has been a place for physical and spiritual cleansing. Dipping into icy lakes and rolling in the snow are said to be good for your blood circulation, but most people do them simply for the incredible rush. Head to an amazing outdoor forest location to try your hand at winter swimming in the icy water. Raise your head to catch a glimpse of the magical Northern Lights. After the sauna experience, head to the frozen lake to hunt the Northern Lights while you enjoy hot drinks and a BBQ.

What people are saying about Lapland

Very good experience and visit to the frozen hotel. Very beautiful unique place in the world. Leave a little more time to visit the rooms. Lots of free time but lack of precision on the places of leisure and time. Great atmosphere at the Icebar, with a very nice bartender who puts a good atmosphere, the party. Little more for the tradition of shooters. Finnish sauna + jacuzzi at the top. Great meal, very friendly staff.

Excellent experience enriched by the appearance of the boreal car radio, polite staff, comprehensive and with a pinch of humor that does not hurt ... of course you need to know English ... excellent dinner, worth the ticket price

Experience at the top, very pretty and atypical for the ice hotel. Sauna and jacuzzi at the top. Small flat pick up earlier than 11:30 p.m. after the restaurant the time is long. But otherwise I recommend we liked it a lot.

Finnish sauna, snow sauna and jacuzzi are amazing. Very unique experiences! Although the kotahovi restaurant is just average especially the reindeer meat but the whole experience was great! Would definitely go back again.

Very good evening. We didn't see any dawn but had a good laugh. Good guide.
