Ice swimming in Sodankylä
The ice swimming sessions for autumn 2023 and spring 2024 have not yet been updated. Please follow the announcements here.
In 2022, the autumn season began in Kommat in October and the spring season in January. Kommatti’s ice swimming shifts were on Mondays and Thursdays from 4 pm to 9 pm.
The payments were made either as a one-time payment, which was done by dropping cash into the mailbox at the sauna or by paying as a mobile payment with stimulus benefit applications. You could pay for ice swimming here.
Did you know that you can also rent a lakeside sauna in Kommatti for private use! Read more here or contact the advice of the municipal office: email@example.com.
At Karu Lodge you can enjoy soft and relaxing steam in the smoke sauna. In addition to this, you can take a dip in to the refreshing pond. The sauna can be heated by special order. Karu Lodge is located in Luosto. More information in here.
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.
