This 8 Ft Classic Cedar Scenic View Barrel Sauna features a traditional Scandinavian-style design.

The Scandinavian barrel sauna has a classic beauty in its elegant simplicity. Our barrel saunas are constructed with tongue and groove lumber staves held tightly together by stainless steel bands and fasteners. This interlocking system allows the lumber staves to expand and contract naturally and form a tight seal. In addition, the sauna unit sits on support cradles (included) that keep the sauna's underside above the ground. Our Scandinavian barrel sauna is lovely, and its design is incredibly energy efficient, distributing heat evenly throughout the interior.

Designed for those with a passion for the outdoors.

The Panorama Sauna is our most deluxe sauna with a full glass back wall, allowing you to enjoy natural light and take in beautiful views, all from the cozy inside of your sauna. The natural light makes this special sauna feel more spacious, and the ability to enjoy a wonderful view gives you the ultimate sauna experience.

100% Canadian Western Red Cedar

We have made our sauna's from 100 percent Canadian Western Red Cedar. We have also made our door hinges, bands, and fasteners with stainless steel for excellent performance and durability. Furthermore, our sauna's come with a full glass door with self-closing hinges, so you won't have to worry about lack of privacy or heat escaping.

The relaxation provided is second-to-none.

Our sauna kit includes a backrest so you can get comfortable. Sit on wooden benches and enjoy the company of friends and loved ones in a sauna room filled with soft lighting and enjoy the aromatic scents of the clear western red cedar. Our saunas give bathers a truly authentic and relaxing Scandinavian sauna experience. A towel hook (included) is a great place to keep towels for drying off and cooling down between rounds.

World-class performance

Don't worry about buying sauna's that are slow to heat up because Scandinavian barrel sauna's heat quickly. You can turn the temperature up to 90 Celsius within an hour, and you'll soon be able to sweat out the toxins in the sauna. Every Backcountry Recreation barrel sauna includes a water bucket, ladle, sauna rocks, and a combination thermometer. Therefore, you can enjoy the Sauna experience once you've completed the assembly.

Easy self assembly

Putting together our sauna kits is easy! All our saunas are designed with the DIY customer in mind. All the pieces are pre-cut and grooved, so no sawing or cutting is required.

In addition, it allows an easy installation process, so why not treat yourself to a shower in the great outdoors?



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.
