Fitness and sauna master at Theresa
Originally from Finland, Harri Pitkäniemi is a Tyrolean at heart. He was born and raised in Helsinki and moved to the beautiful Zillertal in 1992 for love. He is now married and a father of two. In addition to spending quality time with his family, he is also passionate about health, fitness and sports. He is a trained volleyball coach, ski and climbing instructor, snowshoe guide, sauna master and qualified to work with children.
The declared health and fitness expert has been an asset to Hotel THERESA for over ten years. He is responsible for organising the indoor and outdoor sports programme and enjoys taking guests on hiking and biking trips in summer, or accompanying them as they explore the Zillertal mountains on skis. At the hotel, he also offers water gymnastics and myofascial training. The highlight, however, are his sauna ceremonies, which he performs according to Finnish tradition. Don’t miss out on his unique sweat rituals.
Harri Pitkäniemi is a linguistic genius. He speaks Finnish as well as German, English, Spanish, Italian, French and Swedish. Because of that – and because of his typical sense of calm – it’s not unusual for our guests to ask to speak to Harri when they book a holiday with us. In his spare time, he unwinds in the mountains or enjoys a spa day at one of the Best Alpine Wellness Hotels himself.
