100 Years in Finland

By Linda Tancs

Finland became an independent state on this day in 1917. Not surprisingly, the country’s centenary has been celebrated throughout the year nationally and beyond. Why not mark the event by participating in a classic Finnish tradition: the sauna. One must-see is the Rukan Salonki Ice Sauna. Built on top of Lake Salonkijärvi, it can accommodate up to 10 people at one time. There’s even a hole in the ice next to the structure for winter swimming should you desire a polar bear plunge.
