    Saunas are Finnish, not Norwegian, though their use has spread throughout Scandinavia.

    The sauna is the room. The heat bath is called a kylpy.

    i wonder why they spend a hour in the sauna, then splash cold water on themselves, and go back into the sauna to repeat the process all while they drink vodka.

    Uh, maybe it’s because of the vodka.

    Hot tubs and snow, excellent. Just add “friends.”

    As Garrison Keillor put it once, “sun-crazed Scandinavians”.

    Sauna’s use rocks. Hence the drink ‘vodka on the rocks’.

    vwdualnomad, actually there was a purpose for doing that. It’s a very good way to wash your body during freezing winters….Back in the day, with no running hot water, keeping clean was kind of difficult……Kind of a variation of “Save water, shower with a friend..” And make an event of it….It was usually done with the whole family…..Usually, before everybody climbs in, somebody warms up a bucket of water for each person, to wash the sweat away before you jump in the snow….Sometimes they used to swat each other with evergreen bows Don’t have a clue what that was about..
