The Sauna by #ScanAdventures

ScanAdventures: The smoke sauna in which a large amount of wood is burned to heat up the sauna is considered by cognoscenti to be the real thing but they take time ( all day) to get ready so are fairly rare. More common is the wood stove sauna with stones sitting on top of the birch wood and, in cities, electrics saunas. Embedded in Finnish Culture taking a sauna is relaxing, convivial and stimulating.
