Experience the steam of a sauna raft on beautiful Lake Orajärvi

Orajärvi is a beautiful large lake just 15 km from Sodankylä town centre. The lake is dominated by the rugged Oratunturi fell, whose peaks rise above the northern shore of Orajärvi. On the sauna raft you can admire the view of the fells, the blue shimmering waters of Lake Orajärvi and the unbroken calm of Lapland while enjoying the steam and silence. Take a dip in the invigorating Lapland waters straight from the raft!
