 The sauna’s weekend program has only been released for February so far, to incorporate visitors' ideas and wishes throughout the spring.
The program for February weekends includes family sauna sessions and separate sessions for men and women.
In addition to exercise classes, visitors can also enjoy winter swimming (avanto) and sauna sessions, as well as peat treatments and massages, which require separate registration.
