If you are a huge Burger King fan, you will be excited to know that the American fast food chain is taking the experience of dining on burgers and fries to a whole new level - by opening its first spa in Finland.

Customers can now kill two birds with one stone and enjoy a steamy relaxing sauna session while chomping on a scrumptious Whopper at the same time.

This spa, located at the Mannerheimintie branch of Burger King in Helsinki, features a 15-person sauna, shower and locker rooms, and a media lounge with a 55-inch TV and a Playstation 4 console.

Burger King themed towels and robes are provided for lounging and the interior of the sauna follows the iconic red-and-blue colour scheme.

What's more, patrons will not have to go hungry while getting steamy in the sauna room, as servers from the Burger King outlet will be on hand to take food and beverage orders.

Finns love saunas and "with one sauna for every three people in Finland, it's an integral part of the country's culture", according to CNN .

According to a BBC Magazine report in 2013, there were 5.3 million people living in Finland and 3.3 million saunas.

To Finns, a spa is a place for relaxing, socialising and holding business meetings.

So if this wild idea of dining on Burger King's flame grilled specialities while sweating it out sounds appealing to you, make Finland your next travel destination.

Renting the spa area will cost €250 (S$386.76) for three hours.
