HOT spot is a traditional Finnish sauna with hot and dry air, where temperature can be as high as 100 °C. The sauna causes prolific sweating and creates an enjoyable and relaxing experience.

The true effect of the sauna exhibits itself when cold and hot phases alternate – every time in sauna should be followed by a cold shower. The sauna stimulates metabolism and helps the body to eliminate toxins.

Infrapuna saunSitting next to a bonfire on a chilly summer’s night you feel that the air is cold but your face is nice and warm. The INFRARED sauna is quite similar to that. Even though the temperature is low, you will sweat up to 3 times more than in a regular sauna. INFRARED light accelerates metabolism, helps clear out toxins, aids in losing weight and decreases cellulite.

Moreover, the INFRARED sauna helps to relax, increases sleep quality and raises collagen levels in the skin. A true miracle worker, right? The recommended time limit to enjoy the INFRARED sauna is approximately 20-30 minutes. We recommend drinking a lot of water before and after the sauna visit.

SMOKE sauna 70-80 °C

SUITSU saun

Traditional smoke sauna is a sauna that does not have a chimney. There is a big sauna stove, which is heated for several hours, in the sauna room. The smoke stays in the sauna room and heats the sauna in addition to the stove. When the sauna is heated up, the last smoke is let out, the room aired, and visitors can enter the room. Every smoke sauna has its own personality, which only the sauna keeper knows how to handle.

Not too long ago, all saunas in Estonia were smoke saunas. The first saunas with chimneys were built about a hundred years ago, and nowadays most of the saunas are “clean” saunas. Working smoke saunas are already a rarity in modern Estonia. Most of the smoke saunas still in use are in Southeastern Estonia, in Võrumaa and Setomaa.

There are certain truths and traditions connected to going to the smoke sauna. These traditions are passed on from generation to generation. One has to know how to heat and visit the sauna. There is no fumes or smoke in a sauna that has been heated properly, the air is light and the sauna does not burn. If you respect the sauna traditions and take time for the sauna, to the sauna assures your good health and gives you strength.
