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.

Every Backcountry Recreation Panorama Barrel Sauna comes with a water bucket & ladle, sauna rocks, and backrests. Our saunas will heat up in under one hour, allowing you to relax in a temperature of up to 195 F. The glass 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.


TRADITIONAL SCANDINAVIAN DESIGN

The Scandinavian barrel sauna has a classic beauty in its elegant simplicity. 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 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.

DESIGNED FOR NATURE LOVERS

Our most deluxe sauna yet, the Panorama Sauna comes with a full glass 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.

Thermal-wood Construction 

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.

Thermowood’s Characteristics & Qualities

This process causes chemical and structural changes to occur within the timber, which therefore alters some of its characteristics and qualities. Some of the characteristics and qualities that make Thermowood such a popular specie includes:

Dimensionally Stable – The intensive heat the wood is exposed to during its production dries out deep into the core, causing all moisture and resin to be removed from the timber. Thermowood therefore doesn’t react to changes in humidity as drastically as untreated wood (the risk of swelling, cracking and shrinkage is decreased), allowing it to retain its shape far better. The wood also doesn’t secrete sap or resin even in high temperatures.

Environemntally Friendly – The softwood used to produce Thermowood originates from well-managed, PEFC-certified forests, and as no chemicals or foreign substances are involved during its production, Thermowood is an environmentally friendly material produced by using only natural methods.

Resistance to Rot and Fungi – Due to the heating process breaking down hemicellulose, the wood doesn’t contain the appropriate nutrients to allow rot and fungi to grow and develop.

Increased Longevity – When wood is treated with heat, its average life span is prolonged meaning your sauna will last a lifetime!

Improved Insulation – Wood that has been heat treated is much more porous than untreated wood, vastly improving its insulating properties.

THE RELAXATION COMES NATURALLY

Our sauna kit includes a 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 the thermowood. Our saunas give bathers a truly authentic and relaxing Scandinavian sauna experience. A towel hook (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 spirit level, a Phillips head screwdriver drill, an adjustable wrench, a hammer, and a rubber mallet.

SHIPPING ACROSS CANADA

We ship our saunas to everywhere in the United States to sauna enthusiasts who enjoy the wellness benefits of heat and steam!
