I have just read that Finland is the happiest country on earth……why could this be I asked myself ?
Could it be that of the 5.5 million population, there are TWO MILLION SAUNAS !
If we applied that percentage to the UK, it would mean that there would be around twenty six million saunas (I wish !!!).
The Fins love their saunas so much that there is even one installed in the Burger King branch in Helsinki (not quiet sure how that sits with health and wellness, eat a burger and then sweat it off ???).
Sauna really is a national obsession according to the article in the Telegraph, and in the Anttolanhovi wellness village you can experience the typical “smoke sauna” and then follow that by jumping in the near by lake.
