TRY THE TRA­DI­TIONAL

Seabourn Club Herald - - WELL-BEING -

IF YOUR TRAV­ELS take you to Fin­land, and you want to ex­pe­ri­ence the best in tra­di­tional, wood-burn­ing saunas, ar­range a visit to The Koti­har­jun Sauna in Helsinki. Although it was ren­o­vated in 1999, its ar­chi­tec­ture has re­mained un­changed since it was built in 1928.

Its up­per­most benches — the hottest, most prime places — ac­com­mo­date about 30 peo­ple, with more space avail­able on the lower lev­els. As dic­tated by tra­di­tion, there are sep­a­rate rooms for men and women, how­ever both sexes can re­lax to­gether over non­al­co­holic bev­er­ages af­ter their baths in the com­mon area out­side. There’s no need to make reser­va­tions and you can stay in as long as you want.
