Sauna with bath in the lake
The picture is from the new pond. Below you can read more about how it came to be and why.

(2022-06-13) To be sure of a place, pre-book your visit online.
Here on the website you can also buy annual passes and season tickets, read more about how these work below.
The sauna is a place for recovery and recreation. Please respect that many guests come for these very reasons.
We expect you as a guest to be considerate of other guests in order to achieve an optimal environment with minimum strain on the facility and maximum consideration for other guests.
You as a guest and we as operators also have a shared responsibility to ensure that the facility is clean and tidy - we have recycling bins for plastic, paper, pet and other items in the changing rooms - and that unnecessary congestion is avoided.
Your entrance ticket can be rebooked for another day if you have purchased a rebooking guarantee at the time of booking, a rebooking guarantee costs SEK 20.
Stored items are kept outside for two weeks. Staff cannot go through all the leftovers, take responsibility and look for your particular item, therefore self-service on site applies. There is no need to call/email us beforehand. Welcome!

Cool off in Källtorpssjön
As a sauna guest, you can cool off in Källtorpssjön via our bathing jetty. Our guests swim here all year round!
After a swim in the lake, it is popular to relax on our terrace, located overlooking the lake and directly adjacent to the sauna building.
OBS! Rinse with a towel all around your body on the terrace, on the way to and from the dock.
The walkway to and from the bathing platform is a vulnerable environment. We advise you to stay there in the company of another bather. The jetty can be slippery and there is a risk of severe hypothermia when swimming.

Aufguss - aroma sauna on Wednesday evenings (summer break only in July)
On Wednesdays from 18.00-21.00 we have an aroma sauna with "aufguss", under the guidance of our knowledgeable and inspiring "saunameisters".
After the summer, we may return to twice-weekly infusions, as we did before the pandemic.
Entrance fee these evenings is 170 SEK, and your stay is limited to 1.5 hours.
You book in the same way as a normal sauna visit - choose the product Aufguss (ladies) or Aufguss (men).
Aufguss comes from German sauna traditions and can be translated as "pouring on".
In an aroma sauna, the sauna master pours water with fragrant essential oils over the hot stones of the sauna heater, creating wonderful air currents that are enhanced by the sauna master waving/swishing a towel.
A session lasts 5-8 minutes and takes place on a rolling basis during the evening. So you can't expect to be at every sitting, but guests take turns to bathe/shower/rest.
The Aufgussmeister decides how many people can fit in the sauna at the same time and when the sessions take place.
To allow guests to relax and enjoy the scents and warm breezes, the seating is done in silence.
The last session of the evening is around 20:15, so that everyone can finish in peace and be out of the facility by 21:00.
Of our five sauna attendants, only one is a woman. In order to complete the sessions during the ladies' Aufguss, she may need the help of one of our male Aufguss. If this happens, all female guests will be informed.
If you absolutely cannot imagine a man holding an Aufguss during your visit with us, please feel free to write to us via firstname.lastname@example.org, we make sure not to use one of our male sauna attendants on this particular evening.
Saunameisters: Tomas, Lars, Tauno, Olav and Nicole.
Common question: why don't we have mixed infusion nights?
We, the operators of the sauna, have suspended all mixed activities. The main reason is that there is still a spread of infection, and both departments are now the same size. If ladies are allowed into the men's side, unnecessary crowding could occur there.
If/when we return to offering mixed saunas at certain times, we will clearly communicate when, where and how this is done, as there are guests who for various reasons do not want to be part of the mixed activity.

This is how it happened when the pond was rebuilt...
Before the facility was rebuilt starting in summer 2020, the capacity on the women's side was significantly smaller than the men's side. Both changing rooms and saunas were smaller.
When the pandemic paralysed parts of the business, the owner, Hellas Alliance Association (a collection of Hellas clubs, read more here) in close consultation with us, the operators of the facility, to carry out the necessary renovations - and a desired redesign of the women's side.
By changing the layout, on a proposal from architect Petter Lindblad at Partum, space was created for more changing lockers and showers - as well as a larger sauna.
The sauna was built at an angle and involved experts in sauna and ventilation. The test runs we did before opening the facility showed that the air circulates as planned and that the heat spreads in a desirable way in the space.
The heater used is a Harvia brand, which is the most common heater used in public saunas in Finland.
Most of the work has been carried out by craftsmen at Söderorts Bygg. We who run the business have enjoyed working with Söderorts Bygg.
During the pandemic, we also moved to online bookings. We can now track booking statistics and see that Hellasgården is used as much, or more, by women than by men. The renovation, which came in over the owner's budget, has thus proved to be well justified and timely.
Here you can see the new reception area.
From idea to reality - the new reception and activity centre
The new reception and activity centre will serve as a hub for all activities at Hellasgården.
For those of us who run and work at Hellasgården, this is a big step - now we separate the café operations, which will continue to be run in the Sjöcaféet, and the management of all activities - everything from sauna visits and football golf to overnight guests and conference guests.
Hopefully, this will enable us to offer even better service to you as a guest.
Unlike the other parts of the sauna building, the design and furnishings for the reception area have been carried out and largely financed by us, the operators.
What to do if you can't pay online
Some guests may have difficulty paying online. If this happens to you, please send an email immediately to email@example.com.
In your email, you can write the time you want to book and we want you to specify:
What type of card you are using, if you are booking via mobile then it is of interest to know what type of mobile phone, and if you are booking via computer you will want to know what browser you are using.
For those who had a season ticket or annual pass when the pandemic broke out
Due to the pandemic, we closed the sauna to the public on 24 January. If your season ticket or annual pass had not expired by then, we will extend it by the time you had left, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
