Product Details

8 FT Red Cedar Barrel Sauna - 6 Person

Do you have questions about our outdoor barrel saunas? Give us a call at 1877 445 3565.

Saunas have been used for social and therapeutic benefits for thousands of years worldwide, especially in Scandinavian countries.

Each Backcountry Recreation outdoor barrel sauna kit comes with a wood-burning stove or electric heater, water bucket and dipper, wooden heater guard, sauna rocks, and interior seating benches. In under an hour, our high-quality saunas will heat up to temperatures of 195 degrees Fahrenheit so you can enjoy them wet or dry.

HIGH-QUALITY CANADIAN RED CEDAR

We use 100% Canadian Red Cedar for all our cedar barrel saunas because it is the best type of lumber to resist harsh weather and other elements. With proper care, your cedar sauna should last 15-20 years.

CONVENTIONAL SCANDINAVIAN DESIGN

Our Scandinavian barrel saunas are constructed with tongue and groove lumber staves, held tightly together by an interlocking system of stainless steel fasteners and bands. This helps the lumber staves to expand and contract, forming a tight seal naturally. The sauna unit is founded on support cradles that keep it above ground level. Our Scandinavian barrel saunas are easy on the eye, use less energy, and evenly distribute heat throughout the interior.

NATURAL RELAXATION

With wooden headrests, cradles, and backrests, you can sit comfortably on the benches in the company of friends and loved ones. The room is filled with soft lighting and aromatic scents of cedar wood, creating a genuinely calming environment.

FINLAND-MADE HARVIA SAUNA HEATER

Harvia is the most trusted name in sauna heaters and has a rich history dating back to 1950. Located in Finland, our company takes pride in our ETL-certified products built from high-quality stainless steel and coated with red enamel. We do have other options as well if you would like to upgrade to a higher end heater as well.

WOOD-BURNING STOVE ALTERNATIVE FOR OFF-GRID CLIENTS

The Harvia M3 is an advanced wood-burning stove specifically designed to be used in saunas. To install the chimney kit, cut out a circular hole in the roof staves. The chimney kit is not included in the base price. If you purchase it separately, you'll need 6 foot by 6 inch diameter stove piping, interior protective flashing, a chimney collar, and an external rain flange.

SIMPLIFIED ASSEMBLY

Building our saunas is a breeze. All of our saunas are designed for the do-it-yourself customer. All the parts come grooved and pre-cut, so no sawing or cutting is necessary.

Anyone with basic woodworking skills can put one together in about 4 hours. The only tools you'll need are a Phillips screwdriver, level, 7/16″ and 9/16″ open-end wrenches, vise grips, 9/16″ deep socket wrench, and a mallet.

SHIPPING WITHIN CANADA & THE UNITED STATES

Do you love saunas and the benefits they offer? If so, you'll be pleased to know that we ship our saunas everywhere around the United States!
