Traditional Finnish Smoke Sauna Evenings

Come and enjoy real Finnish experiences in lumberjacks's style in 50's. Visit the very large smoke sauna, have a delicious traditional dinner with Kuopio specialities, enjoy live accordeon music and even dance.

"Traditional public Finnish evenings" are organised Tuesdays around the year and in summer also on Thursdays at Jätkänkämppä (jätkä = a lumberjack, kämppä = a lodge), which is an authentic lumberjack lodge from the 1950´s. The Jätkänkämppä is the pride of Rauhalahti and it is situated 600 metres from the Spa Hotel Rauhalahti. 

This event is selected as a top wellness product in Finpro’s Visit Finland Finrelax growth programme. See the bulletin here.
In addition, Jätkänkämppä's smoke sauna was picked by Culture Trip as on of their Finland Local Favorites 2017. Read the article, 10 of the best saunas in Finland.
