Travel Guide of Finland

Finnish Sauna World

Relax in the Sweet Heat of Sauna By the lakeshore of the Hotel & Spa Resort Järvisydän you can find separate sauna premises that are called Finnish Sauna World. The Sauna World consists of 3 different types of saunas. There are two Finnish wood stove saunas, traditional smoke sauna, steam sauna and a relaxing hot tub under the blue sky. The Sauna World has room for up to 70 bathers at the same time.

A Bucket of Blueberries

Blueberry, mustikka in Finnish, is one of the most common berries we have and if you ask me, also the best one. Blueberries are very healthy, high in vitamin C and E and also previously believed to improve night vision. The hardest part of picking them is to get at least some in your bucket as well, they are so good you want to eat them immediately! We will also make a traditional snack: blueberry milk from fresh berries.

Spiritual Finland Tour and Finnish Shaman Healing

Enjoy a shamanistic healing anywhere in Finland. The duration is about 1 hour, and you can also get a massage or practice mindfulness in Helsinki, Archipelago, Lakeland or Lapland. It is possible to clear traumas, fears, and other negative energies during a traditional shaman healing. You are free to choose the kind of atmosphere you want for your healing. If you wish, you can also enjoy an aromatic massage in your Igloo, with the Northern Lights' energy in the air, full of magic and love. Astrology and other readings are also available.

Unique day with Yoga and Husky Therapy, 5 hours

Welcome to visit a tiny family-husky-farm near Rovaniemi, where eight huskies are just like the rest of the family members. We live at an old farm 13 km out from town at the picturesque scenery on the lake shore. It is our pleasure to invite you to visit our home and meet these special furry friends. We start our relaxing day by doing yoga practise in the beautiful yoga shala with a lake view in our home. After a little revitalising snack we will take the huskies and go to enjoy the fresh air by skiing or sledge riding.

Villa Raita

Wie würde Ihnene ein Urlaub auf einer wunderschönen Insel im nördlichen Saimaa-Seengebiet gefalen, in einem neu gebauten Haus im karelischen Stil unter alten Bäumen?

Deserted Island Excursion

This excursion will take you to one of the secluded lakes, to the roads less travelled, where you will experience Finnish nature on your own. When there is no traffic, no people, no electricity – you will feel the nature on all your five senses; nature looks brighter and more colorful, food by open-fire tastes different and better, you can hear waves at the shore, smell the nature without distractions and feel the clean and fresh air through your body. After 24h at Deserted Island you will be energized, refreshed and in peace after escaping to the middle of the wildlife.

Pampering Moments

While staying at our hotel, you can choose a pampering treatment or relax by having a massage.

Saunas and recreational pools are in your use.
