Jeris Arctic Sauna World
Our five different saunas cleanse both mind and body, and the calming view over lake Jerisjärvi puts a finishing touch on total relaxation.
Sauna is holy to the Finns
We named four of our saunas after Finnish folklore gods: Tapio, Ukko, Ilmatar and Vellamo. Each god ruled over the element their sauna represents: earth, fire, wind and water.
On the shore of lake Jerisjärvi, the four elements come together to form a fifth, steam (“löyly”). The icing on the cake is our aurora sauna Repo with large windows for Northern Lights watching.
Cool off in lake Jerisjärvi all year round
In summer, you’ll stroll to the water on a sandy beach, and in winter, we have a hole in the lake ice.
The ice hole is accessible for both first-time dippers and experienced winter swimmers.
Bathing in a sauna and winter swimming are claimed to have several positive health effects.
Find your way to feel good
We created Arctic Sauna World not only for physical and mental wellbeing, but for everyone to discover their preferred way of enjoying the sauna culture we love so much.
In Finland, sauna is often a pleasant social event, where people openly discuss the profound things in life.
Five themed saunas and arctic swimming
Choose your favourite from our four elements saunas and Northern Lights sauna. Cool off with a dip in lake Jerisjärvi – either on a sandy beach or a hole in the ice.
The fire sauna
In Finnish folklore, Ukko is the king of all gods and the master of weather and thunder.
That’s why our most traditional sauna, the smoke sauna, belongs to Ukko.
This dark and atmospheric sauna is hot and fiery when tempted. The best way to enjoy it is to pour water gently on one spot of the stove for slowly increasing and relaxing heat.
The earth sauna
Tapio is the antlered king of the forest, protector of the animals.
In this sauna, you’ll find the feeling of earth and forest while enjoying the “löyly”, hot steam.
The sauna has four massive stoves: North, East, South and West, as well as a “löyly” divider – unique characteristics you won’t find in any other sauna on earth.
The water sauna
Vellamo is the goddess of water, the ruler of lakes and rivers.
This sauna has a panoramic view over lake Jerisjärvi and delivers soft and steamy heat.
Over the stove, there’s a bowl that gently drips water and slowly increases heat and humidity, letting you enjoy the beautiful lake scenery outside the window.
The air sauna
Ilmatar is the goddess of wind and the first mother at the beginning of time.
The sauna of Ilmatar has no fire but infrared heaters inside a “kota”, Lappish tepee, that provides gentle heat.
This is half a sauna, half a relaxing room for enjoying the sounds and warm breeze of Lappish summer nature.
The Northern Lights sauna
Repo is an old Finnish term for fox. Revontulet, fox fire, is Finnish for the Northern Lights.
Our Repo sauna is a two-floor panorama view experience of the northern sky and lake Jerisjärvi.
The upstairs lounge can be converted to a four-person sleeping space. The facilitites include a private toilet, changing room and showers.
Take a cooling dip in lake Jerisjärvi before, after and during sauna.
In summer it’s on a sandy beach, in winter in a hole in the frozen lake!
