SAUNA ONLINE EXPERIENCE
I have partnered up with Intrepid Urban Adventures to create an ultimate online experience from Finland for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own home.
Discover everything about authentic Finnish sauna and wellness rituals, from ice swimming to quirky local habits and sauna drinks. Chat with me, your new local sauna host on this interactive virtual experience and teach your body and mind to endure extreme heat and cold.
As your host, I'll be happy to give you a tour of my home sauna. And then we'll head over to our nearby beach and cool off in the ice-cold sea and/or snow.
We will also discuss Finnish sauna etiquette and some of the essential words you need to know, all of which will make your future in-person visits to Finnish saunas significantly smoother. Mastering the dos and don’ts will help you to focus on the most important thing: relaxing.
This is my passion project of sharing positive vibes and promoting lovely sauna bathing habits from Finland.
