Sauna: Löyly Helsinki

Tssxsssszh! The sound of Löyly Helsinki.

In case you haven’t yet been invited to a sauna by a local, here is another great option. At Hernesaarenranta, you’ll find a sauna that’s not only architecturally exceptional but also an urban oasis by the Baltic seaside. You can wine and dine and have the sauna experience of your lifetime. Löyly alone is good enough reason to visit Helsinki.

It is so nice to visit Finland and see this kind of innovative, sustainable and environmentally forward-thinking design take place. The handsome duo behind this project, a Finnish actor Jasper Pääkkönen and a member of Finnish Parliament Antero Vartia, have earned a certification from the Forest Stewardship Council for their work with Nextimber, a technology that converts waste wood into wood panels.

Finland has about 3.3 million saunas, one for more or less every household. A sauna is a place for peace, quiet and cleansing. It’s part of life.

My dad, for example, goes to sauna every day. And my husband Riz loves sauna so much, that he goes several times a day whenever we are in Finland. On our next trip together, I will definitely take him to Löyly.

So whether you are travelling to Finland on business or pleasure, make sure to scratch a couple of hours from your schedule for your sauna experience. Löyly has three different saunas available, two public (smoke and wood-fired sauna), and one private with uninterrupted sea views and a chance for swimming throughout the year. Just bring your swimming costume and everything else is on house (towel, seat liner and shampoo and shower gel). The admission fee for a two-hour sauna visit is EUR 19.00, additional hours are charged at EUR 10.00 per hour.

At Löyly, the environmentally-conscious approach also extends to their restaurant. The menu is built with certified, organic produce wherever possible and you can find many dishes with delicious Finnish flavours. Drinks and snacks are available to purchase at the sauna as well.

    Seems like a great place to relax, Karoliina. I haven’t personally tried any saunas but I’m willing to. I guess I gotta find somewhere close by but I’m sure it’s way better in Finland!

      Hi Ron! Finnish sauna is very different to American or steam saunas – that alone is a good reason to travel to Finland 🙂 My husband who’s Indian loves the Finnish sauna because it makes you feel squeaky clean.

    Great post Karoliina. My first experience of sauna was an interesting one somewhere in the Baltics. It was a memorable experience and I’m still not sure whether I’ll try it again. Love the pictures, they are beautiful
