Rejuvenate and relax the body, mind, and spirit with a Saunacation

Join Larsmont Cottages April 19-21 for a weekend of excellent food and drink, live music, exploration and relaxation at Sauna Days. This festival is the perfect event to kick off to spring on the North Shore.

Guests will learn sauna etiquette from like-minded enthusiasts, sample authentic Finnish food and drink and cool down with a plunge into Lake Superior. The purchase of a ticket comes with dedicated time in one of the 4 on-property saunas, a bonfire with a live performance by Woodblind and smorgasbord buffet dinner prepared by Larsmont Cottages’ executive chef Simon Gilna.

In addition, the Sauna Times podcast will be on property Saturday to record a live episode and local brewery Ursa Minor Brewing will be pouring four beers all weekend, including one specially brewed for the event and Aquavit from Duluth’s own Vikre Distillery.
