Our easy-to-follow instructions for self-assembly make setting up your barrel sauna a breeze.

Our Wooden Barrel Saunas are available in various sizes, in Canadian Red Cedar or Nordic White Pine, and with or without a porch.
OUR SAUNA DESIGN
The Scandinavian barrel sauna is held in place by sturdy stainless steel bands and minimal fasteners (see photos). This system allows the lumber staves to expand and contract to form a tight seal, and the unit sits on polymer support cradles that loft the sauna’s undercarriage off the ground (see photo). The Scandinavian barrel sauna design is noted for its efficiency, even distribution of heat, and visual appeal. In addition, the front sauna porch creates a visually appealing and useful outside sitting area — a place to hold towels or drinks or to serve as a relaxing place to cool off between sauna rounds.
Our cedar saunas are made from 100% Canadian Western Red Cedar.
The door hinges, heater, fasteners, and bands are made of stainless steel. In addition, the sauna has a tempered, tinted full glass door with self-closing hinges.
These saunas will heat quickly--to as much as 195 F (90 Celsius) in under an hour. Every Backcountry barrel sauna comes with either a wood-fired or electric stainless steel heater, water bucket & ladle, sauna rocks, and combination thermometer/hygrometer so that you may begin enjoying the authentic sauna experience as soon as the assembly is complete.
Soft interior lighting, opposite-facing benches that allow bathers to enjoy good conversation, and a sturdy heater fence made from aromatic cedar or pine scents all promote the authentically relaxing experience Scandinavian sauna experience.
