In a northern land, the sun hardly sets. It’s time for a festival of light, of nightless nights. Waves are restfully meeting the pebble stones on the shore of a small lake - a wooden house stands between the lake and a forest of long long pine trees. There is smoke coming from the chimney.

This is the Tangosauna. Where the beautiful, divine creatures we’ve become to know as tango dancers, come once a year to bathe under the midnight sun, embrace each other on the dance floor and refresh spiritually.

On the Friday morning, these people start gathering to a Country Club in the middle of the woods, first DJ takes the stage and sauna is being warmed.

 

Fifth edition of Tangosauna: 29 June - 1 July 2018
 

 

Registration

Registration is open for one week, from Monday February 19th until Sunday February 25th. After that, we will look at all registrations received during this week in one go. We will do our best to balance the event between leaders-followers, nationalities and regions to create the best possible Tangosauna experience.

Tangosauna is limiting entry to accepted registrants only and no tickets will be sold at the venue. Tangosauna has space for 170 dancers, about 60% foreign dancers and 40% local, Finnish dancers.

Sauna

Sauna is a great way to relax and refresh both physically and mentally. In Finland there are almost 3 million saunas (and only 5 million people)! Here, the sauna is not just any “thing” you go to for leisure. It’s a cultural institution passed on for generations.

The sauna is not to be afraid of. A good temperature lies around 80°C and the meaning is not to stay in as long as you can, the sauna is not a competition. In Tangosauna we have 2 lakeside saunas, one for men and other for women. You can go in with your swimming suit, with a towel or just naked, as you prefer. The early morning sauna is a mixed sauna for both men and women.
Towels are provided in the rooms, but are not changed daily - it is a good idea to bring your own towel for the sauna.
