Ukko – The Fire Sauna
Ukko, the king of all gods, Master of weather and thunder. Our most traditional sauna, the smoke sauna belongs to Ukko. During the heating process smoke goes through the whole sauna colouring it black and giving the scent of smoke. This dark atmospheric sauna provides fiery and hot Löyly if you ask for it.
The best way to enjoy löyly is to pour water gently on one spot of the stove. This way the hot steam doesn’t make you feel uncomfortable, but instead gives a slowly increasing relaxing heat.
Tapio – The Earth Sauna
Tapio is the antlered king of the forest, protector of the animals. In this sauna you can find the feeling of earth and forest besides löyly. Sauna is split in to four directions; North, East, South and West. Four massive stoves and the löyly divider in the middle of the sauna is unique character you don’t find in any other sauna.
Tapio is the biggest sauna in the Arctic Sauna World and similar to sauna of Ukko. You can get a really good and hot sweat in this sauna if you wish.
Vellamo – The Water Sauna
Vellamo, the goddess of the water, the ruler of lakes and rivers. Wherever there is water, Vellamo is present. This sauna has a panoramic view over lake Jerisjärvi. Löyly of Vellamo, the steam that rises from the stove is soft and moist giving a gentle heat throughout the sauna. Increased humidity of the sauna brings the presence of water elements into the sauna.
On top of the stove there is bowl which can be filled with water. Slowly dripping water gently brings up the heat and humidity giving you the chance to enjoy the gentle touch of löyly and the scenery of lake Jerisjärvi.
Ilmatar – The Air Sauna
Ilmatar, the goddess of wind and the first mother in the beginning of times.
