Thursday, September 12, 20:00—00:00
Hernesaarenranta 4, Helsinki



Löyly is one of the most popular things to see and do in Helsinki and the perfect setting for ERM participants to relax and wrap up their first day at the conference. In 2018, Löyly was among Time Magazine’s 100 Best Places in the World.

After the Thursday poster session, shuttle buses will take you directly from the Clarion Hotel to Löyly from 19:45 to 21:30 (the bus ride takes approximately 15 minutes). If you wish to stretch your legs, it’s a 30-minute walk from the hotel to Löyly. Shuttle buses back to the Clarion Hotel run from 22:00 until midnight.

During the informal evening at Löyly, you will get to enjoy refreshments and the famous Löyly salmon soup. Finnish actor and fisherman Jasper Pääkkönen is behind the secret recipe of the soup, and he is also one of the founders of Löyly.

Feeling jetlagged?

Why not try the gentle steam of the smoke sauna and take a refreshing swim in the sea!

Those who wish to try the Finnish sauna experience can sign up at the registration desk on Wednesday and Thursday. We warmly recommend it, and remind you to bring your swimsuit!

Sauna is an essential part of Finnish culture and the national identity. There are only 5.4 million Finns, but the country has 3.3 million saunas. Löyly is without a doubt one of the most popular public saunas in Helsinki – now you have the opportunity find out why.

Finnish sauna at löyly

Löyly has three separate saunas, which are all heated with wood: a continuously heated sauna, a once heated sauna (which is heated in the morning before the sauna is open and stays warm all evening). When you feel like cooling off after a good steam, both saunas offer direct access to the outdoor seating area and the sea, where you can enjoy a refreshing swim, all year round.

Löyly has separate changing rooms and shower facilities for men and women, but as the saunas and other public areas are mixed, Löyly respectfully requests that swimming costumes are worn at all times. If you forget to bring your own, you can rent a swimsuit for €6 for 2 hours.
The ERM staff is happy to help you and answer any practical questions you may have.
