It was an amazing experience to have a Finnish style sauna by the frozen lakeside. My parents were super excited for jumping into the lake / the snow. This was really an unforgettable experience for us who live in a place without snow. The host Alex and his wife were very friendly and keen to share their local’s life with us. And unexpectedly at the end he gave us a little surprise (that I'm not gonna share here haha). Yep, I can tell this is one of the most awesome things in this trip in Finland and it's a MUST do for those who wants to know more about locals.

We went to Alex Rudyuk sauna and dinner in rovaniemi. It was an amazing expirience the sauna is located on a frozen lake in a beautiful spot. You sit in the sauna and then you can jump into the ice or little pool with icy water wich is an amazing thing to do. Dinner cooked by Alex was very tasty.

I must say that me & my friends are fully enjoyable and feeling warm with this Traditional Lappish Evening that hosted by Alex~! We've experienced the little slideable-chair on the frozen lake, special Sauna in the firewoods plus jumping into the ice water in the fascinating lake~!!!
After experiencing the Sauna & icewater-jumping, Alex & his wife already prepared the grilled salmon with Lappish side dishes & veggies. All of them are delicious and sweet with the warm and romantic set-up table inside the house just opposite the cottage.
Everything is SOOOOO GREAT to USSSSS~! & we just feel being well-served with detailed arrangement.
Alex also provide informative sharing about the Finnish and different Lappish topics during his drive that makes our journey without a minute being bored and very memorable~!!! WE LOVE IT!!!
Thank you so much Alex & your wife~! We hope to visit Rovaniemi in Summer Time would absolutely looking forward to seeing you soon~!!! Just bring us to see what you mentioned in Lappish Summer~! GoD BLeSs~!

We have recently enjoyed the best Sauna experience ever we could imagine in Rovaniemi. Alex and his wife were an excelent host for this activity and took us (A couple with two kids) to their really nice cottage by the lake just 30 min away from the Santa Claus Village where we were staying.
The place was like a dream, really nice house and incredible sauna little cottage, just in front of the lake therefore perfect for the Sauna+buterfly snow swim+lake swimm. All very nice light up with candles up to the lake. At the Sauna we found towels, sneakers, water, coffee, tea and some sweets wich was an unexpected plus for this experience. Once inside the Sauna just plenty of time to relax and enjoy the evening.
After Sauna and swimm great experience we enjoyed a lovely grilled Salmon dinner in the Cottage, really very nice atmosphere with the candles and the nice set up of the table where we enjoyed some of the lappish dishes.
We are a couple with two kids (14, 7 years) and really enjoy all of us the great experience and actually something really memorable for the family. Therefore even if it doesn't sound like a family fun activity we would highly recomended as well together with the rest of activities you can do in Rovaniemi (Huskies, Reindeers,.....)
Alex and his wife were at all time very nice with us and explained us many issues and facts of Finland and Rovaniemi. They were a really great Hosts!!!
