Our sauna hut

Housed in a kota (traditional Finnish cottage), our sauna is located next to the hot tub in the middle of nature. The ritual of the sauna begins with a shower, followed by a steam bath, the room is usually heated to 80-100 ° C. Water is thrown on the hot stones that cover the kiuas, a special stove used to heat the sauna. This produces a large amount of wet steam, called löyly, which increases the humidity and heat in the sauna. According to the rules of the art, a sauna session must last between 1h30 and 2h and have 2 to 3 phases:

  • Once well soaped, you have to sit on your towel, with the limbs (arms, legs, feet …) preferably all at the same level and only looking to relax. The breathing will become deeper, the heart rate and blood flow will accelerate and the blood vessels will expand. The exit should be considered as soon as sweat rolls on the body. This first phase must not exceed 15 minutes.
  • It is then necessary again to shower with lukewarm or cool water, to dry, then to agree a few minutes to relax while lengthening.
  • A second passage in the sauna can then be considered, of a duration equivalent to the first. When leaving, the protocol remains the same: shower, drying then return to calm by the rest.

If one feels capable, a third pass may be considered. It must be interrupted as soon as the feeling of fatigue is manifested. After this last session, a rest period of at least 20 minutes must be respected.

Due to the high heat in a sauna, water loss through perspiration can exceed 1 liter per hour and body temperature can rise to 40 ° C. To compensate for this dehydration, it is essential to drink water between passages in the cabin.
