Here’s how a sub-zero experience liberated me, calming the nerves, healing the soul… The girls had come all covered up in muffs, furs and mittens. It was -14*C. They whined as they took off all the layers and dipped in the icy cold water. Shivering, frozen to the bones. And then it hit us. The warmth and yet being Surrounded by ice, on wooden benches with hot steam coming out like a magic felt like being in a fairyland. This is how you feel when you are left in the lap of luxury at the Arctic Sauna. Our dream of luxury holidays in Finland had come true and in best way possible. The lake outside was frozen hard.Inside, we perspired! Thank you Vibrant Holiday Destinations, for this liberating experience. Scaling the snows and conquering the cold.
