It’s only natural that a Burger King spa opens in Finland – right? It’s the traditional home of the sauna. The Fins are renowned throughout the world for their rugged approach to getting hot and steamy and then jumping in a freezing lake. Some run around in the snow. So the news that Burger King, yes you heard it right, Burger King has opened a spa in Finland’s capital, Helsinki is not that surprising.
It’s reported to be a fully functioning spa that’s an add-on to the burger joint which will allow patrons to eat their burgers and fries in a sauna capable of seating up to 15 people. And it doesn’t stop there, there is a range of high-tech add ons. The red and blue benches in the sauna pick out the chains logo and create a bright and breezy look, designed by Finnish designer Teuvo Loman. The spa area also features a 48-inch TV for viewing movies, as well as a gaming lounge, complete with 55-inch TV and a Playstation 4 console. You can even order in – servers will bring you your order.

Finns love to sauna
Whilst I’m not sure I would want to chow down on a burger whilst sweating like a pig. Finn’s do love to sauna. I have read that there is a sauna for every three people in the country of Finland. That’s a lot of saunas, and many people have their own private ones at home. So, it might be time to book a flight and head North to check out the news that a Burger King spa opens in Finland.
Hiring the spa area will cost £250 for three hours.
