WATCH | Discovering sauna etiquette in the Baltics

Join world nomad, Ash Bhardwaj, as he explores the unusual and very different sauna etiquette traditions of arctic countries.

Not one to hold back, Ash fully immerses himself (quite literally) in the customs of the sauna - whether it's jumping naked into snow or learning not to stare at other people while sweating in the heat. 

But you don't have to travel all the way to the Baltics for a sauna experience - head to your nearest spa or at your local gym to do it like the Nords - cold weather excluded.
