Have questions about our barrel saunas? Call us now on 1800 567 8036.
Every Redwood Outdoors barrel sauna kit comes complete with either a Harvia electric heater or wood burning stove, wooden heater guard, water bucket & ladle, sauna rocks, a combination thermometer/hydrometer gauge, and interior seating benches. Our saunas will heat up to 195 F in under an hour, and can be enjoyed either wet or dry, catering to a true Scandinavian sauna experience.
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.
All our cedar barrel saunas use 100% Canadian Red Cedar. We select the highest quality cedar for its proven resistance to weather and the elements. Cedar is the best choice of lumber for maximizing outdoor lifespan. With proper care and maintenance your cedar sauna should last 15-20 years.
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.
WOOD-BURNING STOVE OPTION FOR OFF-GRID CUSTOMERS
Classic wood-burning saunas are very special. The crackling fire, warm steam from the rocks and the ritual of tending the fire all combine to create a timeless and unforgettable experience. The Harvia M3 is a compact wood burning stove which is perfect for our saunas. Installation of the chimney kit requires cutting a circular hole in the roof staves. This could be performed by a carpenter or a more experienced DIY customer. Please note that our chimney kit is sold separately. If you prefer, chimney pipe and stove accessories can be sourced independently. If you are sourcing yourself, you will need 6ft of 6" diameter stove piping, interior protective flashing, a chimney collar and an external rain flange. Also note that the M3 wood stove is larger than the electric heaters and reduces the seating capacity of the sauna.
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.
We ship our saunas to everywhere in the United States to sauna enthusiasts who enjoy the wellness benefits of heat and steam!
Please note that our design team is always working to improve the quality and usability of our saunas. As a result, small details (e.g., type of accessories, bench slat quantity, direction of wall boards, door handle style, etc.) may differ slightly from the unit pictured above.

I love everything about this sauna. It’s soooooo awesome.
Here’s a couple things you might like to know: sauna is sold as a 6 person. Yeah right. It’s 4 max. Which is fine, and anyone purchasing who knows the dimensions would realize that, and it’s a very comfortable 2 person sauna.
One important disclaimer, they no longer ship the poly cradles. At least that’s what I was told after I received my shipment. That was disappointing, because you need to treat the wood ones they send you with something. But for how awesome the sauna is, I won’t complain., but do think redwood should put that on their website,, or at least in an email when you purchase.
One other thing of note, just like with the hot tub assembly manual,. The directions did not reflect exactly what you actually have shipped to you, so there’s some guessing or calling redwood to get the answer to some questions you may have, that are not addressed in the manual.
All in all 5/5 , I highly recommend getting one. First time in my life I can’t wait for the cold weather to come, so I can get lots of use out of this sauna. The electric heater heats up crazy fast. You are up to a very high temperature in a matter of 20 minutes at the most.
Assembly was super easy from start to finish, and the team at Redwood are always available to answer questions. Thanks for the amazing sauna!
Awesome product! Bought the sauna and the Relaxation Pack! Love the smell of cedar mixed with eucalyptus
I love how spacious this is, I will definitely tell my friends to order from Redwood!
Very easy build, thanks!
