White Background

It's quiet and magical. You are in the Heart of Lapland in our family's wilderness cottage called Lompero. Sauna is an important part of the Lappish lifestyle. This sauna session takes place in a wood-heated sauna building, which has a sauna room and a cozy dressing room. The sauna is located by a small pond in the middle of a beautiful winter landscape. The water is traditionally carried from a pond where it flows from a spring. The sauna and washing water are heated by fire, traditionally with wood from our own forest. As the sauna fire lights up the sauna, the scent of summer herbs from Lapland also pours in. The herbs have been gathered in the summer from the surrounding area. From them we have prepared a foot bath, sauna steam water and "vasta" which will give you a special sauna experience with their health-promoting properties. For the bath products we have selected natural products made by local small entrepreneurs. There is an opening in the ice of the pond where, with our guidance, you can take a dip in and cool your body from the soothing heat of the sauna. In addition to the sauna, we will serve you a small  homemade savouty from local products.
