This was one of the most incredible experiences of my life, and we travel A LOT! This was such a limit pusher in so many ways and pleasant, warm, friendly, and just all around absolutely terrific. Doing the sauna and ice plunge was so fun. Then, we relaxed and enjoyed time around the fire inside cooking sausages and drinking warm blueberry juice. Wow, cannot recommend enough. You won’t regret this! Great family-run business, great job.

2 years ago we were supposed to be in Finland but had to wait out the pandemic before we could finally come. I thought we were going to jump into the freezing lake but soon found out that you actually climb down a ladder into the water and then dunk yourself. So we enjoyed 15 minutes in the sauna and then ran down to dunk ourselves. Then back to the sauna to warm up and then a second dunk. I’m not going to lie and say that it wasn’t cold. But, I did willingly go twice even after I knew you had to climb down into the water!!! Afterwards we chatted with our gracious host in the Warm Hut who told us about the family owned business and about Finland in general. We got to toast our sausages over the fire (and they had vegan sausages too!), drink warm blueberry juice and eat Finnish chocolate and gingerbread cookies. It was amazing afternoon and I would recommend going for a visit with the wonderful family. They offer other services like Aurora hunting that we didn’t get to experience but hope to on our next trip. It was worth the 2-year wait for sure!!

This sauna was absolutely amazing, and is something you must do while in Rovaniemi!! My wife and I signed up for the experience through our hotel, so, I was expecting something fairly commercialized with other hotel guests. This was the complete opposite. Wild Blueberry is a quaint, family operated sauna that caters to private experiences. The sauna was located 10-15 minutes outside of Rovaniemi in a quiet, beautiful spot in the forest next to a frozen lake; and we had the whole place to ourselves! The staff was so friendly and accommodating! On the drive to the sauna, they told us all about Wild Blueberry and Finland. And once there, they took great care of us, ensuring we were comfortable the entire time. They guided us through the process of sauna, ice bath and hot tub, all the while keeping the fires for the sauna, hot tub and warm hut well stoked, and our thirsts quenched. Additionally, after hearing that we hoped to see the Northern Lights, they did everything they could to monitor the atmospheric conditions and capture pictures of us gazing at the sky when the auroras showed up. Finally, the meal around the fire in the warm hut was great. We enjoyed fresh smoked salmon, salad, cold smoked reindeer and cheese and sausages. This experience was so authentic and intimate! It is an absolutely MUST DO. If you’re looking for the authentic sauna experience, go to Wild Blueberry!

I can’t say enough good things about Wild Blueberry! My husband and I visited them for the sauna/ice dip experience and it was amazing from start to finish. It’s private, it was just the two of us. So that made it feel extra special. They’re nearby to snap pics of your experience and that’s so thoughtful (because trust me, you want to remember the time you got into a frozen lake at -20° celsius!) The guys were extremely nice and very hospitable. And the night ended with a delicious meal of reindeer and salmon next to the fire. A must do if you’re in Rovaniemi!

Thanks for hosting us! The whole experience was very relaxing in an intimate atmosphere made of passion. Above all the hole in the frozen lake was our highlight. But also the sauna and hot tub! And last but not least: The cook and his creations (mmmhh, salmon and reindeer with that heavenly sauce...). Thank you very much! Kiitos paljon! And be well!
