Our easy-to-follow instructions for self-assembly make setting up your sauna a breeze. No special tools or carpentry skills are required, and our instructions are written with the DIY customer in mind. All lumber pieces are pre-cut, and assembly typically takes less than 3-4 hours. Upgrade your backyard or recreational property with a therapeutic Scandinavian barrel sauna with a glass wall that will bring the scenes of nature right to your doorstep.

OUR SAUNA DESIGN

The Scandinavian sauna is held in place by sturdy stainless steel components and minimal fasteners (see photos). This system allows the lumber staves to expand and contract to form a tight seal. The Scandinavian sauna design is noted for its efficiency, even distribution of heat, and visual appeal.

MATERIALS

Proudly made from Scandinavian Thermowood! Thermowood is created by heat-treating Scandinavian softwood to temperatures ranging from 180 – 230° in special chamber kilns for tup to 96 hours. Steam is a protective gas that helps prevent the wood from splitting and becoming damaged during treatment. In addition, wood that has been heat-treated is much more porous than untreated wood, vastly improving its insulating properties. This process makes the perfect material for saunas!

The door hinges, heater, fasteners, and bands are made of stainless steel. In addition, the sauna comes with a tempered and tinted full-glass door with self-closing hinges.

PERFORMANCE

These saunas will heat quickly--to as much as 195 F (90 Celsius) in under an hour. Every Backcountry has a 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.

ATMOSPHERE

Modern design and 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. This is the full experience of the Scandinavian sauna tradition.

SHIPPING

Super easy and fun to set up. Absolutely stunning with the glass wall, windows and door. I love it.

We got this set up so quickly. The videos and instructions were great. I think with a few sets of hands we had it built in about 4 or 5 hours and then the next day installed the stove (wood burning) which felt a bit nervous to cut the chimney hole in the beautiful barrel sauna but it was easy and everything fit together well.

I think it all goes together so quickly as several of the components come built like the benches, end walls, floor pieces.

Amazing sauna! Thank you!
