I’ve written about the sauna available inside the Finnair Lounge in Helsinki before. Now another airport lounge, this one nearly 1,200 miles away, offers not just one, but two saunas.
This lounge is in Paris. It’s in the new Air France Business Class in Terminal 2E. I also wrote about that lounge in a separate post. Rather than a communal sauna like in Helsinki, this lounge has two private saunas.
I hear the 33,000-square foot lounge gets very crowded, so you may need to arrive very early to secure one. The Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse in London Heathrow also has a sauna (and steam room).
As a Southern California native, I grew up with hot summers and very mild winters. Saunas were not at all part of my life growing up. But when I started traveling, now over a decade ago, I discovered how therapeutic saunas can be.
Perhaps my love of saunas is best summed up by this Travel + Leisure video:
People who regularly visit saunas show lower rates of dementia, hypertension and cardiac death than infrequent visitors.
A sauna is a must-have amenity for me if I am on vacation in Europe. My German wife, who grew up using saunas, rolls her eyes at how much I love them.
Would you use a sauna in an airport lounge?
