The Panorama Barrel Sauna is our flagship sauna. It’s a must-have for properties surrounded by breathtaking natural scenery. Bathe in this eco-friendly sauna whilst taking in the great outdoors through the Panorama viewing window. Our cedar sauna with bubble window is our most coveted product.

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 saunas will heat up in under one hour, allowing you to relax in a temperature of up to 195 F. The acrylic bubble window creates a visually appealing and relaxing atmosphere. All of these features give our saunas a finish you won’t find elsewhere. We do everything we can to create that true Scandinavian sauna experience.

CHOICE OF CANADIAN CEDAR OR FINNISH PINE

Our Panorama Barrel Saunas are available in either Finnish White Pine or Canadian Red Cedar. Both materials are good options, although cedar is more weather resistant and will have a longer lifespan. The door hinges, heater, fasteners and bands are made of stainless steel. The sauna comes with a tempered and tinted full glass door with stainless steel hinges.

DESIGNED FOR NATURE LOVERS

Our most deluxe sauna yet, the Panorama Sauna comes with an acrylic bubble back wall that allows 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.

QUALITY CRAFTSMANSHIP 

Our barrel saunas are constructed with tongue and groove lumber staves that are held tightly together by stainless steel bands and fasteners. This interlocking system allows the lumber staves to expand and contract naturally, and to form a tight seal. The sauna unit sits on polymer support cradles (included) that keep the sauna’s underside above the ground. Not only are our Scandinavian barrel sauna lovely to look at, their design is incredibly energy efficient and helps to distribute the heat evenly throughout the interior.

THE RELAXATION COMES NATURALLY

Our sauna kit includes a wooden head rest, cradle and back rest 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 cedar. Our saunas give bathers a truly authentic and relaxing Scandinavian sauna experience. A towel rack (included) is a great place to keep towels for drying off and cooling down between rounds. 

EASY SELF ASSEMBLY

Putting together the 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. 

Anyone with novice woodworking skills could build one in approximately 4 hours. All the assembler will need is a level, Phillips screwdriver, 7/16″ and 9/16″ open end wrenches, 9/16″ deep socket wrench, vise grips, and a mallet (included). 

Please note, all of our panoramic saunas are setup for electric heaters and will have one bench shorter than the other to allow for heater placement. If you choose a wood burning kit you will still have this allowance for  the electric heater.

*** If you are going with a wood burning stove option 6" stove piping, 4.5" - 6" stove pipe adapter, flashing and chimney boot will need to be sourced locally if not purchased from us.
