The new Lonely Planet has included my sauna guiding into the newest Lonely Planet Culture Trails -travel guide book:


Finland is the only country in the world where all the ports freese during the winter. These are the mighty icebreakers on summer holiday at the Katajanokka harbour in Helsinki.

The Senate Square is known of it´s famous neoclassical architecture by Carl Ludwig Engel. The square is full of activities through the year.

The Sibelius Monument by Eila Hiltunen is dedicated to our national composer Jean Sibelius. The monument is visited by hundereds of thousand guests every year in Helsinki. Here is true tunes of the Finnish soul: The Alla Marcia -part of the famous Karelia suite by Sibelius. Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra is playing and the orchestra is conducted by Finnish Leif Segerstam.

We have more that three million saunas in Finland. Some of them are inviting guests to experience the essence of the Finnish hospitality. Our sauna tour will widen your senses and you will start feeling much better.
