Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort

Kakslauttanen has a total of five saunas. One of these is the largest smoke sauna in the world. At the end of the jetty, you can take a dip in the water, and don´t worry if it´s frozen over –  we´ll cut a hole in the ice. The refreshingly cold spring water is pure enough to drink. The smoke saunas are only available by special order because it takes six to ten hours to heat them up. More information in here.


Did you know that winter swimming has been proven to help with at least pain, overall health, as well as improve cold adaptation and slightly increase the body’s antioxidant level. Antioxidants are essential for keeping the body healthy.
