Put your mind and body at rest in the humid steams of the earth sauna and the traditional smoke sauna. After bathing in sauna, it is time to enjoy some delicious home-cooked food, such as the house speciality, organic wheat cracker bread and rye and rice open pasties. How about some cake made with homegrown strawberries to wash down with blackcurrant juice?
