Sauna Tips for Beginners

WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU DO IN A FINNISH SAUNA AND WHAT NOT?

In our sauna you may wear a use swimsuit, but if you want to rent the sauna for private use with your partner, friends or family, of course you can disrobe entirely. Finnish sauna has nothing to do with sex. It is a place for physical and mental cleansing, and many suggest one should behave in a sauna as one would in  a church. That is not to say you shouldn’t relax – just kick back and take it easy.

Enjoying sauna ritual can mean anything from a quick 10-minute steam session to a social event lasting several hours.  Afterwards you can savor a cool drink and traditional Finnish after-sauna snacks by roasting sausages in tin foil on the stove.

The Saunaboat® amenities include a small fridge, a dressing room, lockers, and a lavatory.  A quick, warm shower can be taken in the sauna room.  You can freely pop in and out of the sauna and sunbathe on the deck chairs or take a refreshing plunge in the  deep, cool, clear  water of the Gulf of Finland.

HAVE A LOOK AT OUR TIPS BELOW AND YOU NEED TO WORRY NO MORE.

In our SaunaBoat® you can experience real wooden stove heated from 70 °C up to 90 °C.  In order to retain even heat in the sauna, we recommend that you place 2-4 wood logs in the stove every half an hour. There are no rules for how often you should throw more water on the stove. Whenever you feel like another wave of steam, go for it.

You will be sweating a lot in the sauna, so be sure to drink plenty of fluids.  There will be fresh spring water. Water is probably the best for you, but beer and cider are what most adults enjoy as well.  There are no real rules when it comes to sauna, and the way it is done totally depends on the occasion. The most important thing is to relax, socialise, have a couple of drinks and enjoy the blissful post-sauna feeling of having cleansed both your body and your mind.

Sauna is good for everybody. Only newborn babies and people with serious conditions like open wounds or heart problems should avoid the sauna. Everybody else can enjoy it with no worries, and in Finland, you’re more than likely to.
