Product Description

Modern Sauna - Higi

Have questions about our Garden sauna? Call us now at 1877 446-3565.

Modern Scandinavian Design 

The Higi Sauna sauna has a classic beauty in its elegant simplicity. Our Garden saunas are constructed with tongue and groove 44mm staves. This interlocking system allows the wood to expand, contract naturally, and form a tight seal. Not only is our Higi sauna lovely to look at, but its design is also incredibly energy efficient and helps to distribute the heat evenly throughout the interior.

Scandinavian Nordic Spruce

Spruce is a great choice for any kind of sauna. The quality rustic look (with small tight knots) is traditional and beautiful with its unique wood grain. Spruce sauna wood is popular in Finland and traditional European saunas. When kept outside, Spruce should be stained or painted (similar to a deck or garden shed) to keep it in top condition and ensure you can continue enjoying your Garden Sauna for many years!

Spruce's Characteristics & Qualities

Spruce has a fresh scent and a pleasant light colour, and it is a soft wood and thus is pleasing to the touch inside the sauna. Some of the characteristics and qualities that make Spruce such a popular specie includes the following:

Lighter Color - The colour is the most common difference between Spruce and other sauna woods. The lighter wood gives the sauna a cleaner, more spacious feel and a contemporary look. In addition, the lighter wood has the desired feeling of spaciousness, helping to dispel a sense of closeness.

Less Discoloration – Stain resistance is another Spruce advantage. Darker wood can quickly discolour in a sauna environment, turning gray or black. However, with only normal cleaning (occasionally wiped down with a mild detergent and water), Spruce will stay the same as its original color and condition.

Sustainably Sourced – Spruce has been classified by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species as being at the "least concern" level.

Proven Quality – Traditionally, saunas built in Scandinavia, the birthplace of saunas, use Spruce. In Europe, the vast majority of saunas are constructed out of Spruce. Spruce is a proven choice with a long track record of creating beautiful saunas and makes an excellent building material for your garden oasis. Cedar and other lumber types are typically only used in the U.S. due to their availability.

Protect your sauna from the elements and keep it looking its best for longer by protecting the wood with a shingled roof. We recommend adding these asphalt shingles to keep water off the sauna and increase the wood’s longevity. The shingles are black in color. Note* not installing a roof system of some sort may result in water seepage into the sauna.



Don't love the look of shingles? Prefer the natural look of wood? Consider a removable rain cover that can be put on or taken off depending on the weather.



Turn the round bottom of your barrel sauna into a flat floor. Just like our sauna, this flooring is made with the highest quality wood and designed to fit all our barrel saunas. Upgrade your sauna experience with flat flooring.

Awesome Sauna!

Love our new sauna! Was easy to build and looks great! The service team was very helpful when I did have a couple of questions during build. We went with the 12kw heater here in Ontario and it gets HOT.

Really love this sauna

Looks great in our backyard. The team at Backcountry was extremely helpful and provided excellent post purchase assistance during setup. Thanks again !

Really great sauna!

Really great sauna, setup was a bit challenging for me but I'm not the handiest person. Took us a little over a day to get built but the end result is fantastic. Very modern looking and would recommend.
