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, water bucket & ladle, sauna rocks, 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.

100% Grade-A Canadian Cedar

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. 

Traditional Scandanavian 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.

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. 

Harvia Sauna Heater, Made In Findland

Harvia is the world’s leading sauna heater manufacturer and Harvia heaters are considered the industry gold-standard. Harvia is was established in Finland in 1950 and has built an international reputation for exceptional quality. With a Harvia heater, you know you are getting a reliable product that you and your family can trust. All our Harvia sauna heaters are ETL certified and are manufactured in Finland. 

Manual Control or Wi-Fi Control Heater Options

Our manual control heaters have two dials: a temperature dial and a timer. The timer can be set for up to an 8-hour delay, meaning you set your heater to come on while you are out and your sauna will be ready when you get home.

Our digital Wi-Fi heaters can be controlled via the digital wall pad mounted nearby your sauna, or from any smartphone or tablet. The big convenience of the Wi-Fi control is the remote start capability which allows you to pre-heat your sauna from anywhere—whether at the office or on the slopes. With few taps on your phone, your sauna will be ready when you get home. Wi-Fi heaters can also be pre-set to come on at a specific time of day, such as early in the morning. 

Unfortunately, you cannot upgrade a manual control heater to a digital Wi-Fi system in the future. While the manual and digital heaters look very similar, they are in fact totally different heaters. This means you must select the control system you are going with at the outset.

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.

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 The USA

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

    I've purchased two Sauna's from Redwood Outdoors for a few of my rental properties. They have helped bump up my bookings in a large way and our guests have really enjoyed them. We have an 8 person and a 6 person and each of them took about a day to put together but they seem to be holding up well to our Michigan weather so far!

  • HARVIA KIP ELECTRIC HEATER

    HARVIA KIP ELECTRIC HEATER

    The KIP family of electric sauna heaters are traditional Finnish wall-mounted heaters. They heat up fast and reach high temperatures of ~190F within one hour. This design holds up to 40 lbs of rocks, on which you can douse water to create soothing steam. The KIP creates a relatively dry heat and you should expect ~15-25% relative humidity in the sauna. The KIP comes in an attractive stainless steel exterior case that easily mounts on your sauna wall.

    Harvia is the world’s leading sauna heater manufacturer and Harvia heaters are considered the industry gold standard. Harvia was established in Finland in 1950 and has built an international reputation for exceptional quality. With a Harvia heater, you know you are getting a reliable product that you and your family can trust. All our Harvia sauna heaters are ETL certified and are manufactured in Finland.

  • HARVIA SPIRIT HEATER

    HARVIA SPIRIT HEATER

    The Harvia Spirit sauna heater has an eye-catching and modern design that combines beauty and performance in one package. The soothing curved design of the Harvia Spirit electric heater gives a natural and serene look, which will help put your mind at ease. The Harvia Spirit holds 130 lbs of gorgeous rounded sauna stones that evoke calmness. This generous amount of stones allows bathers to create incredible steam (löyly) in the room. The heater is equipped with a remote WiFi control, which makes usage easy. The Harvia Spirit is truly the spirit of your sauna! Harvia is the world's leading sauna heater manufacturer, and Harvia heaters are considered the industry's gold standard. Harvia was established in Finland in 1950 and has built an international reputation for exceptional quality. With a Harvia heater, you know you are getting a reliable product you and your family can trust. All our Harvia sauna heaters are ETL-certified and are manufactured in Finland.

  • HARVIA CILINDRO ELECTRIC HEATER

    HARVIA CILINDRO ELECTRIC HEATER

    The Finnish word “löyly” is the name for the hot steam that rises from your sauna rocks after water has been carefully poured on top of them. The steam turns your sauna into a hot and humid paradise, capable of relaxing even the tensest muscles or stressed minds.

    The Cilindro specializes in creating a lot of steam. This is because the heater holds 160 lbs of rocks! All these rocks create a more even heat distribution and an incredible löyly that would make any Finn proud.

    The Cilindro has a slightly longer heat-up time than the KIP, due to the number of rocks and is designed to run at a lower absolute temperature. The temperature you should expect from this heater is ~165F, which is the perfect temperature for a steamy sauna (>30% relative humidity) to prevent scalding. Due to the higher humidity in the room, the perceived temperature in the sauna will feel comparable to a drier sauna running at a higher absolute temperature.

  • HARVIA M3 WOOD STOVE

    HARVIA M3 WOOD STOVE

    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 that is perfect for our saunas. The M3 is made by Harvia, the most trusted brand in the sauna industry. Built-in Finland, it is designed to meet rigorous European quality standards.

    Harvia does not include a chimney kit with the stove. Redwood Outdoors offers a chimney kit to pair with the M3 stove (details below). Installation of the chimney requires cutting a circular hole in the roof staves. This could be performed by a carpenter or a more experienced DIY customer. The Redwood Outdoors chimney kit is sold separately. If you prefer, you can source the chimney and stove accessories yourself. If you are sourcing yourself, you will need 6’ of 6" diameter double-wall stove pipe, 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.
