Hugon savusaunat

Atmospheric smoke saunas in Rautjärvi, Southern Karelia, Finland

Hugo's smoke saunas are two authentic, comfortable smoke saunas made of hand-hewn logs on the shores of Lake Rautjärvi, close to the log cabins “Hugon huvilat” and the city of Imatra. Bathing in a smoke sauna is a true Finnish experience – we welcome you to experience it in beautiful Southern Karelia!

Come join us in the public sauna evenings also! Usually on Sundays and Mondays. Book your seat in the calendar below!

About the smoke saunas

You can book a smoke sauna or both for your group for the evening. Dressing and washing facilities and lockers for clothes can be found in the adjoining cabins. There is of course also a lake with a beach and a pier for swimming nearby. If agreed, you can also use the electric saunas in the cabins and/or the inherently Finnish, wood-heated saunas on the beach.

The saunas are always carefully heated for our customers; you do not need worry about the heating of these traditional saunas. The saunas can be heated hot or milder according to your wishes.
