Dive deep into the world of Finnish sauna

Gentle, relaxing heat. Soft, pampering steam. Smell of birch and summer. Quietness. Just time to be.

In the midst of the constantly roaring world, Finns, the world’s happiest people, know how to take care of their wellbeing—they go to sauna. Finnish sauna is a perfect way to relax. It effectively releases stress, makes you sleep better, helps your body and mind to recover, and has multiple scientifically proven health benefits. With long traditions and innovative designs, Finns are truly the sauna nation of the world.

What makes a Finnish sauna authentic and truly relaxing? How can you utilize it for your or your customer’s needs? What amazing business opportunities does the Finnish sauna experience provide?

These themes, among many others, will be covered in the world’s biggest virtual sauna event, World Sauna Forum on the 3rd and 4th of this December! Register to the event free of charge and join us to hear fascinating talks and discussions about the best sauna experience in the world.
