Eccentric Events Special to Finland

Perhaps it’s the short and crazy summer that does it, but Finns have devised some of the most unusual events and competitions in the world.

Seriously off-beat gatherings held throughout the country in the summer months include wife-carrying races, mobile-phone throwing contests and swamp football.

Mobile Sauna Festival

In tiny Teuva Municipality in the West Coast, mobile saunas get together. There are only two rules for the saunas. First they have to be mobilised and secondly they have to be so big, that one person can bath in the sauna.

In year 2022 there was again 47 sauna participators from Finland and other countries. You are welcomed to join us, with or without your own sauna!

Welcome to Teuva, Parra Free Time Area, again 2024!
