Get the Most Out of Your Outdoor Sauna
There are many types of saunas on the market today, and finding one that fits your needs can seem daunting—but it doesn’t have to be. A few considerations like insulation, durability, cost, and size can help you find the right traditional outdoor sauna to fit your needs. Some models come with built-in benches and backrests while others have adjustable temperature settings.
One revolutionary feature included in many of the saunas that Airpuria offers is Infrared Technology. Most infrared saunas only offer heaters that release infrared waves near one end of the spectrum, which means that the healing benefits from those sauna sessions are diminished.
Airpuria offers the Nature Collection of Medical Saunas which allows for the full spectrum of wavelengths: near, mid, and far infrared. A full-spectrum heater is essential because each spectrum of infrared waves provides different levels of skin penetration and light therapy. This means that you get to own even more benefits of your sauna session and will truly start to feel more relaxed and healthier, each and every sauna session.
We’ve done the research —and have been able to curate a list of the #1 best outdoor saunas for 2023!

Protect Your Health With a Traditional Finnish Sauna
Saunas are a time-honored tradition. In Finland, over half of the population own an indoor sauna or a backyard sauna!
A traditional sauna is a wood-filled chamber that is heated anywhere from 176 degrees Fahrenheit to 212 degrees Fahrenheit. You can also increase moisture by pouring water on heated stones in the sauna.
Experiencing a sauna can be quite an intense experience, as your body temperature rises and your heart rate increases.
Many studies have shown that regular users of saunas may reap significant long-term health benefits. That being said, we will always recommend consulting your doctor before undergoing any sauna sessions.
Some overall health benefits of using a traditional sauna include:
Reduced inflammation and decreased cortisol
Improved cardiovascular health
Improvement in depression symptoms
Excretion of toxins and heavy metals via sweat

Types of Outdoor Saunas
Outdoor saunas create a personal oasis right in your backyard. No need to head to the gym or a local beauty spa. There are several types of outdoor saunas available, each offering its unique benefits.
Traditional Finnish saunas use sauna stones to create a dry heat environment, while outdoor infrared saunas use infrared light to heat the body directly.
A wood-burning stove provides a more rustic feel and electric elements offer convenience and portability.
A steam sauna is a type of sauna that uses steam to create a moist, hot environment. Steam saunas are typically more relaxing than dry heat saunas and can be beneficial for those with respiratory issues or skin conditions.
Luxury models may include features such as tempered glass doors, LED lighting, and even audio systems for added comfort and convenience.
Additionally, some models come with pre-assembled kits that make installation more effortless than ever before.
No matter what type of outdoor sauna you choose, you can easily create an oasis in your backyard.
Enjoy the Benefits of an Infrared Sauna
An outdoor far infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses infrared light to heat the body directly. Unlike traditional saunas or Finnish saunas, which use sauna stones to create a dry heat environment, far infrared saunas are much gentler and can be beneficial for those with respiratory issues or skin conditions.
Outdoor far infrared sauna can help to relax muscles and open up the pores, allowing for deeper detoxification.
They also typically require less energy than traditional saunas and come with an electric heater and changing room for added convenience.
To enjoy the benefits of an infrared sauna, start by finding a model that fits your needs and budget. Airpuria has many models to choose from in our Infrared Sauna Collection.
Building Your Own Backyard Sauna
If you find that you are a handy person who does not mind putting time and energy into DIY projects, then there are a few DIY outdoor sauna kits and designs available from Airpuria. This will keep the outdoor sauna cost low, also outdoor sauna kits are less time-consuming and invasive than indoor saunas.
Building your own backyard sauna is a great way to enjoy the benefits of a traditional sauna experience. Here are some steps to help you get started:
Choose the right location for your outdoor sauna. Make sure it’s in an area with plenty of sunlight and away from any trees or other obstacles that could block the sun’s rays.
Select the right type of wood for your outdoor sauna. Eastern White Cedar and Canadian Hemlock are two popular choices for outdoor saunas as they are both resistant to rot and decay, while also providing excellent insulation properties. If you're looking for a DIY sauna kit, the Dundalk brand of saunas we offer, which come in Eastern White Cedar, will be your best choice.
Following the outdoor sauna kit guide will help ensure that the build goes smoothly and mistakes are missed.
Before you begin the installation of your outdoor sauna, please read through the instructions fully. Make sure the placement for your sauna is level with a slight slope to the back for drainage.
When to Hire a Professional
It is not particularly complicated to construct an outdoor sauna, and most DIYers can accomplish it. Specialized help may be needed for some of the more technical steps.
Which Outdoor Sauna is Right For You?
When it comes to outdoor saunas, there are a variety of options available. Barrel saunas are a popular choice for those looking for an easy-to-install and affordable option.
These saunas feature a cylindrical shape that can accommodate up to four people at once. They are typically made from Canadian Timber White Cedar wood. Check out Airpuria's Dundalk Canadian Timber White Cedar Harmony Outdoor Sauna.
Wood-burning stoves are another great option for outdoor saunas. These stoves provide a more traditional sauna experience, as they require the user to build a fire to create steam.
Most traditional saunas also require some form of a steam generator. This can be done either manually or with an electric generator, depending on your preference and budget.
Electric generators use electricity to heat water until it turns into steam, which is then released into the air inside the sauna room.
No matter which type of outdoor sauna you choose for your backyard escape, you will enjoy the health and wellness benefits for years to come.
