You can rent a sauna as part of a charter cruise to the island, arriving with the scheduled ferry or if you come to the island on your own boat. Saunas can be rented to the public on weekends in June and between Midsummer and the start of school (usually the second week of August), and also on later August weekends. All saunas can be rented all year round, and separate saunas can be arranged for men and women in a mixed group.
During the public turns, there are separate dressing rooms for men and women, but the saunas and showers are shared, so a swimsuit is obligatory. Bring your own soap and towel! You can get a key from locker against a deposit (for example 20 e note or ID card) from the scheduled traffic vessel.
