I had the pleasure of the Kaurilian sauna on a visit to Helsinki in October and can honestly say it was the best sauna experience ever.
The wooden building is over 100 years old, the decor rustic, authentic Finnish. There is a long wooden table where we enjoyed a pre sauna meal with reindeer meat and traditional accompaniments. All this in a cosy room lit by candles and a blazing fire. The room even has a piano!
After eating we donned robes and entered the sauna itself. It is heated by a wood burning fire and there is plenty of space and comfort.
When suitably heated and washed we returned to the ante room, enjoyed a glass of wine by the fire and a chat before returning to the sauna once more.
I can thoroughly recommend this sauna for anyone wanting a real, Finnish sauna experience and a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
