For a truly unique life experience, you can try the floating Arctic sauna that is on the ice-locked surface of the lake Immeljärvi. The Arctic sauna heats you up with its wood fired warmth. You can follow this with refreshing plunge into an actual Arctic lake that is beautifully illuminated from below the ice. You can also warm up in the Hot Spring outdoor hot-tubs while gazing up the Northern Lights.
To complete the sauna experience, snacks and refreshments can be enjoyed next to a roaring open fire after your sauna under the Arctic stars. The “ice” sauna has capacity for up to 15 persons.

**Traditional smoke sauna
There is also a magical smoke sauna on the lakeshore of the Immelkartano Estate. Smoke saunas are the original traditional saunas that are now quite rare and treasured in Finland. They provide a mystical “löyly” – a combination of heat, steam and atmosphere, and are highly prized by sauna aficionados because of the deep relaxation it delivers.
From the smoke sauna you can also discover a new extreme sensation of cooling off by periodically taking a dip into the Arctic waters lake Immeljärvi or you can try a roll in the soft powder snow. You can also feel the 50 degrees difference between the weather and outdoor hot pool.
To complete the sauna experience, snacks and refreshments can be enjoyed next to a roaring open fire after your sauna under the Northern Lights. The smoke sauna has capacity for up to 15 persons.
