The Swedish Sauna Academy is an association that has its home in Kukkolaforsen, Haparanda. The association is neutral on questions of politics and religion. A great deal of the activities done by the Sauna Academy have to do with communication: the sauna culture is spread in social media as well as with press releases and information letters. The Sauna Academy doesn’t prefer any special kind of sauna. If the sauna is wooden heated, smoke sauna, dry sauna och some other kind, one can call it a sauna.

This year we will be hosts of the 17th International Sauna Congress. Read more about it here
