Participate World Sauna Forum pre-tour on October 2nd!
Probably the biggest collection of smoke saunas in the world can be found from Sauna Village which is located in Juokslahti, Jämsä. The story begins in 1970’s, when people in Muurame (a little town in Central Finland) started to gather Finnish sauna culture in one place. The aim was to collect different kind of smoke saunas in one area, and save these buildings from time and erosion. All these old saunas together would form a Sauna Village. The collection was so important, that in late 1970’s, Finland’s president Urho Kekkonen was being the protector of the Sauna Village.
Harvia is the world’s leading sauna and spa company. Established in 1950 by Tapani Harvia, the Finnish sauna heater manufacturer has grown into an internationally known brand, whose technologically advanced products are imported to more than 80 countries.
