Pyhäpiilo - Sacred Hide - is hidden in the midsts of a sacred fell, on the shore of Lake Pyhäjärvi, with beautiful wilderness landscapes. Experience the traditional Finnish smoke sauna or enjoy spa treatments unlike anywhere else in the world! These treatments are a social event! Together in the sauna we make scrubs and masks from the Lappish wild herbs and traditional Finnish remedies, like tar and peat. Between the heats you can cool off by dipping into the ice-covered lake or roll in the snow!

Pyhäpiilo is part of a family of companies: Ruka911 Maintenance Services & Cottage Rental, Rukan Salonki Chalets & Saunas, Wild Food Restaurant Rukan Kuksa and Apartment-Hotel Ruka Ski Chalets. 

One of the owners, Ms. Marjo,  is also a qualified Sauna Therapist. She has studied all about the different wild herbs and old Finnish remedies so she knows what is the best sauna treatment for you!
