Around the world, and particularly in Scandinavian countries, saunas have been used for thousands of years for their social and therapeutic benefits.
Each Backcountry Scandinavian barrel sauna kit can be paired with either a wood-fired or electric heater of your choice and comes included with a wooden water bucket and ladle, sauna rocks, a combination thermometer/hydrometer gauge, interior seating benches and lighting.
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 complete assembly typically takes less than 3-4 hours. Upgrade your backyard or recreational property with the addition of a therapeutic Scandinavian barrel sauna with 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.
Proudly made from Scandinavian Thermowood! Thermowood is created by heat treating Scandinavian softwood to temperatures ranging from 180 – 230° in special chamber kilns for up to 96 hours. Steam is used as a protective gas and helps to prevent the wood from splitting and becoming damaged during treatment. 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. The sauna comes with a tempered and 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 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.
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 that is tradition in the Scandinavian sauna experience.
