an outdoor experience to remember

Banya Accessories

Essentials for the experience include: a bathrobe, a shapka (woolen hat), flip flops, a scrub brush and a venik. The latter is supplied (one/group). Never leave on an empty stomach. The traditonal, shashliki-based meal is provided at a nominal fee. It will ensure your body and mind are content upon departure. The meal always begins with an optional shot of vodka.

Shashliki on an open-fire

Fresh fruits and vegetables are sourced from our large gardens when in season. When the True Russian or The Ultimate are selected, shashliki is served with traditional foods like potatoes, cucumbers and tomatoes.

What’s a venik?

It is essential to any banya experience. Younger branches from maple, oak and ironwood are sourced on-site. Then hung to dry and cure for at least 6 months. Take yours home for reuse. Oak reeds can be used up to four times and maple twice.

The Shapka

A shapka is essential for controlling your body temperature and preventing overheating. In a pinch, a good thick woolen toque can be substituted. Authentic Russian shapkas are $15 (no HST). Purchase when booking your appointment.
