The whole family can enjoy the Kaupinoja’s sauna. Welcome to the hot steam!


Kaupinoja’s sauna is practically open all the time, except on the second Tuesday of every month, when maintenance is carried out there. In our large sauna you will get quality steam, after which it is nice to take a dip in the refreshing lake water.


You can swim in Lake Näsijärvi both in summer and in winter. From the sauna, a path and stairs lead directly to the lake, so the passage is smooth.


We sell drinks and sausages for grilling. Men and women have their own washrooms and changing rooms with showers and a lake faucet. The dressing rooms have coat racks and lockers, as well as a hairdryer.


Do you have any questions? Feel free to contact us in any matter. We are happy to respond and also receive feedback and suggestions for improvement.
Kaupinojan sauna

Kaupinoja’s sauna

Kaupinoja’s sauna is located on the shores of Lake Näsijärvi, next to the UKK Institute. The site has housed a sauna since 1977, but has undergone many transformations, grown and stumbled. The sauna was last opened on April 25, 2010 after a thorough renovation due to a fire in the sauna on November 15, 2008.

The property and plot of the sauna are owned by the City of Tampere, but the sauna is managed and operated by the Tampereen Talviuimarit ry.

Tampereen Talviuimarit ry was established on March 6, 1960. In the course of its history, the association has grown from a few dozen members who enjoy cold swimming to more than 700 members who maintain the best avant-garde sauna in the country. The purpose of the association is to “improve the health and fitness of the people through winter swimming”. The main goal of the association is both to improve everyone’s awareness of the importance of winter swimming, to expand the hobby of winter swimming, and to improve the recreational opportunities for winter swimming enthusiasts.
