SaunaWorld & Spa – Ukkohalla Resort


The ancient sagas tell a tale of a powerful royal family that lived in the land of Kainuu, whose descendants are the modern nobles and kings of Europe. They tell of folks who were curious explorers of distant climes, fearless warriors and skillful wizards. A people who made long hunting, trade and plundering expeditions from their home region in Kainuu to Norway and across the sea, all the way to England.

They vanquished all resistance through their tenacity with their troops spreading like wildfire to the shores of the fjords and to England’s low-lying moors, and taking the land under their control. Norr, son of Kaukomieli, the powerful King of Kainuu, merged the northern lands and named the domain that was born in accordance with his own name, Norway. The legacy of the name of his son, Tharánd, lives on in one of the largest cities of Norway — its former capital of Trondheim – as well as in the Norwegian royal family.

Hallan Saga’s SaunaWorld got its inspiration from the free people of the North and the fascinating tales of its mythical family of rulers. It’s the saga of all sagas!
