Saunas are an important part of Finnish culture. And it is said that there are enough saunas in Finland to easily accommodate all 5.4 million Finns simultaneously. It’s true since estimates place the number somewhere between two and three million!

In Espoo, you´ll have multiple ways to get familiar with the sauna. There are several types of saunas, the most common being electric, wood-heated, and smoke saunas. In Espoo, you can also book an exotic Inipi Spa sauna experience. Most saunas are private and/or are available for groups to rent, but there are a couple of public saunas too. Enjoy!
