If you’re a diehard sauna enthusiast, it’s time to visit Helsinki’s Loyly

November 28, 2017 – While Americans are still discovering the wonder and health benefits of regular sauna use, it’s no surprise that it’s very much a way of life in Finland. Finland has a population of 5.4 million—and 3.3 million saunas!

If you happen to be a diehard sauna lover, then you should plan a trip to visit the new Loyly Sauna Resort in Helsinki.

Loyly took five years to design and build, and from what we can tell, it was worth the wait. It’s been touted as possibly being the world’s largest sauna. Whether that’s true or not, it looks like it would absolutely be on the “sauna bucket” list of any sauna aficionado. Situated less than two miles from Helsinki, Loyly features a slim elongated design housing the saunas and a restaurant. Public outdoor terraces give a lovely view of the sea and the city.

The true sauna lover is in for a treat! There are three different saunas to enjoy in the complex: one sauna is continuously heated so you get that instant sauna session; a second sauna that is turned on each morning and stays warm through the evening hours; and, something that’s truly rare in an urban sauna—a traditional wood-burning sauna with that smoke experience true Finnish sauna enthusiasts crave. Between your sauna sweats you can relax next to the fireplace for a break in your sessions. And there’s even the option to swim in the sea! In the chill of winter, they create an “avanto”, a hole in the ice that forms so you can even swim in-between sauna sessions in a serious cold splash like nothing else!

Plan a trip to Finland and visit this incredible “sauna resort”. We think you sauna lovers will be in “hot heaven”.
