Purifying Smoke Sauna Experience

A smoke sauna or “savu-sauna” as the Finns call it – is a special type of sauna without a chimney. Heating up a smoke sauna takes several hours. Wood is burned in a particularly large stove and the smoke fills the room. When the sauna is hot enough, the fire is allowed to die and the smoke is ventilated out, leaving the embers to heat the sauna to the proper temperature, but giving a soft heat and the aroma of woodsmoke. The interior of the sauna is completely dark due to the smoke. Welcome to relax.

Traditional Smoke Sauna Experience

Our traditional Finnish smoke sauna is heated 3 times a week (every Tue, Wed and Fri). After the sauna, you can dip into the refreshing waters of the nearby fell brook. Tickets may be purchased at the Reception of Fell Centre Kiilopää. The smoke sauna can also be booked for private use.
