One of Finland’s most popular hotel spas, Järvisydän has been serving travellers since 1658. The sense of tradition is still felt at the hotel with the old-style sauna and spa treatments in near untouched scenery, but still with some modern activities such as concerts and yoga pilates. The best way to take this all in is to book a stay in one of the scenic suites with wide windows overlooking Lake Saimaa.

Hotel Kalevala is unique not only for its antique wooden exterior but also for some of the unusual treatments you can get in the spa.

It may seem odd to sit in a sauna while covered in peat, but it is excellent for the skin and for people with allergies.
