Sauna Like A Finn 1/13

“Yes, but have you ever been to a Finnish sauna?”

Through the Erasmus Student Network (ESN), exchange students from everywhere in Europe have the opportunity to take part in activities, events, and trips at a bargain student price. Today I attended “The Ultimate Sauna Experience” through ESN Jyväskylä and it was a blast. We traveled by bus to a small town outside of Jyväskylä and stopped at a sauna resort of sorts. We got to walk around and explore the ancient sauna buildings and huts still in use today. Then we came inside for a nice lunch, went to sauna, and then came back inside for a traditional post sauna snack, sausages! Although the saunas were hot, the frozen lake water was NOT. Oh to sauna like a Finn…I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy!
