Goal of the Activity

You just arrived in Finland? Now you really need to try out what Finns are famous for: SAUNA! ūüßĖ


Join ESN FINT for an evening at one of the finest public saunas in Tampere, on the shore of lake N√§sij√§rvi. Relax, experience the heat of a true Finnish sauna and take a dip in the lake water! Normally the same sauna would cost 10‚ā¨ per visit but with ESN FINT you can now visit for free! This event is for new international students of the city center and Kauppi campus of the Tampere University. If you are a student in Hervanta campus, please join the welcome sauna event organized by INTO.

Bring your own beers and snacks! We will provide a grill to grill some sausages and some music to set the vibe!

The sauna is mixed gender, so a swimming suit / bikini is mandatory. Sandals / flip-flops are also a good idea.

Please note that the sauna is booked just for us and the temperature inside will be slightly lower than during regular opening hours. Beginner friendly event!

P.S. Did you know that Tampere is the Sauna Capital of the World? It’s true, read more about it at

ESN FINTin j√§rjest√§m√§t tapahtumat ovat avoimia kaikille kansainv√§lismielisille opiskelijoille, mukaan lukien suomalaiset tutkinto-opiskelijat! Tulkaa rohkeasti vaan mukaan tapahtumiimme nauttimaan kansainv√§lisest√§ ilmapiirist√§ ūüėä. Tiedoksi viel√§ ett√§ n√§iss√§ tapahtumissa ensisijainen k√§ytt√∂kieli on englanti, mutta usein vaihtarit haluavat my√∂s kovasti harjoitella suomen kielen k√§ytt√§mist√§.
