1:30 PM – 5.00 PM: Smoke Sauna
Body and soul will be cleansed while relaxing in a mysterious and comforting steam room, together with the host family, whisking, bathing, and pampering yourself with sauna honey. The rich aroma of burning wood is complemented by a whispered note of meat smoked in the sauna, a birch whisk (bunch of leafy twigs), and sauna honey. The sauna is located near a pond for a cooling swim when water is ice free or an invigorating dip in winter. During the experience your hosts will tell you all about and explain the Estonian smoke sauna traditions and beliefs. Smoke sauna is a holy (sacred) place for the family and alcohol is therefore not looked upon well neither before or during the sauna session.
