Saunakeidas - Sauna Oasis

Welcome to Sauna Oasis!

Saunakeidas offers you a high-quality sauna experience in Ilosaari, in the wonderful scenery of Pielisjoki, just a stone’s throw from Joensuu market. Our wonderful and atmospheric saunas heat up every day! Between baths, you can refresh yourself in the Pielisjoki river, under the winter starry sky. You can also rent our premises for private events.

Our premises are modern and easy to use – considering all your needs. Our two spacious saunas offer pleasant and atmospheric baths. The men’s and women’s changing rooms, which are equipped with showers, toilets and lockers for valuables, are located next to the saunas. At the sauna oasis, warm water is always included in the price of the shift.
