Tracing a better life
Different saunas can be found from Piispala
Lakeside saunas and the traditional sauna are suitable for big groups, while small groups can also enjoy the sauna at the Training Centre or the cottage sauna which are near the accommodation and training facilities. In addition, the sauna in the swimming hall offers you the chance to relax in the swimming and spa pools at the same time.
Traditional Sauna and Fisherman’s Cottage in the atmosphere of old days
A log traditional sauna built in the 19th century can be found a few steps from the beach of Lake Kivijärvi. The authentic traditional atmosphere in the middle of tall pines by the lake takes you away for a while from everyday life.
Authentic stove sauna and dressing room
The authentic traditional sauna fits for 15 person to use at the same time. No water points or showers are provided in sauna, so you will enjoy the sauna and washing in a traditional way with warm water picked up from the adjacent hut. You can take a dip in the lake along the shallow beach and in the winter you can challenge yourself to swim in the ice hole at the lakeside sauna side. The dressing room also gives a feeling of old times.
Fisherman’s Cottage and the Courtyard
The Fisherman’s Cottage, where there is a fireplace and a wood stove, serves as the lounge of the traditional sauna. 25-30 persons can sit around the table easily to spend the evening time together. In the courtyard, there is a campfire place with tables and benches for sitting in the pleasant summer evening. Besides, we can also organize dinner occasions in the Fisherman’s Cottage with a special menu.
Kota and outdoor campfire places
There are a few campfire places in our beach area where you can sit by the fire amidst the nature. The outdoor campfire places can also be reached by car, and groups are possible to order day or evening snacks, coffee for meeting events, or other catering services to most of the places. Of course, you can also bring your own food to these places.
From our Lean-to Kitchen, you can overlook the Kivijärvi Lake. Located near PiiSpa Water and Ice Sports Centre, the kitchen can hold 20-25 persons and offers the possibility to enjoy a great time by the campfire, making food, pancakes or BBQ sausages together. Firewood is available on site.
About 600m away from PiiSpa Water and Ice Sports Centre, our Kota is situated right on the beach amid the pine forest. There, about 25 persons can spend the time together at a time, making pancakes or sausages. Included in Work Wellbeing programmes, Kota is a natural place to enjoy the black pot coffee made over the campfire and small snacks. Firewood can be found on site.
The Barbecue Shed is settled just beside the lakeside saunas and next to the Viking Boat dock. Big enough for 15 persons to use at a time, it is a sheltered place to hang out by the campfire even in the windy days. Firewood is available on site.
There are another two campfire places that can be used freely by our customers on the beach area. It is possible to arrange evening snacks there for the camp groups, or you can bring your own food. For firewood, you can ask from our staff before your arrival to the place.
