Don’t sweat alone – sign up for one of the saunas below!

 

Welcome to the MyData 2018 Sauna!  Last year was a big success, come to enjoy a truly Finnish experience. We have arranged a couple of options.

Fun fact - there are five million inhabitants and over three million saunas in Finland – an average of one per household. For Finnish people, the sauna is a place to relax with friends and family, but also a typical part of other kinds of social gatherings including business and work-related events.

We want to offer conference participants possibility to experience this essential part of Finnish culture.

We can take turns for men & women saunas at the venues, just bring swim gear. There are common areas for everyone to socialise together. If you are not in the mood for sauna you are most welcome to just hang out in good company.

Wellbeing Ideas for You

These ideas are to give you some ideas and inspiration if you wish to explore some sporting activities outside of the Conference schedule. We are not in a position to offer hosts or guides for these, but hope they can be self-organised by Conference attendees.

 

Running ideas

 

 

A nice central run around Helsinki can be found here

 

Variations on the length of the run can easily be made, e.g. once round Töölönlahti is about 2km with challenging hill on the eastern side. For the longer loop at around 1.5km checkpoint is the statue of the “Flying Finn”, Paavo Nurmi — winner of nine Olympic gold running medals between 1920-28.

 

Finnair has three running route suggestions here.

 

Swimming ideas

 

The City of Helsinki maintains good swimming facilities. The outdoor heated pool close to the Olympic Stadium is open weekdays Mon-Sat 6.30 – 20.00 and costs €4,50. More info here

 

Other swim options including beaches here

 

The stunning downtown Sea Allas Pool would be a fun experience of pool swim and sauna, though the cost is €14. More info here.
