Sauna Days

Rejuvenate & Relax the body, mind, and spirit with a Saunacation

Sauna Days is an annual festival dedicated to all things Finnish and Sauna. Strip down with strangers for a real traditional Finnish sauna experience. Learn sauna etiquette from like-minded sauna enthusiasts. Experience an intense sauna “buzz”, a kind of calm after a storm feeling but for the body and mind - a feeling that can linger for hours or even days! Don’t forget to transition between hot & cold with a plunge into Lake Superior - a required step in taking a proper sauna.
