This experience was absolutely one of our very favorite during our trip to Finland, Norway and Sweden. It was our first time in an authentic sauna, and then the cold outside, and the icy lake. The sauna was incredible, the moist heat felt wonderful, and adding the provided essential oil in was just perfect. Thank you to Alex who had prepared the sauna to be just at the right temperature when we stepped in. I thought it would be really cold outside when we went out for a break, but it felt amazing. It was a beautiful evening and my favorite place was the swing right outside the sauna where I could gently swing and enjoy the beautiful surroundings, the quiet sounds of nature, before heading back into the sauna. When it was time to head into the house for dinner, the fragrant aromas of Tanya's kitchen met us. We knew that there was a delight awaiting us! And, it was! Tanya had prepared a delicious feast of salmon, potatoes, and red pepper strips with a dill sauce that was incredible. And, cookies!! All of this dining inside their sweet home on the lake. After dinner, Alex and Tanya came back in the house and we visited for a while, asking them questions and they sharing a verbal and tangible picture of their life here. It was an incredible evening and one that I would definitely, definitely return to if ever back in this area!! Alex and Tanya, thank you for this wonderful experience!
