Get your sweat on in your own backyard! 😅

Not only can you buy tiny homes, she-sheds, man caves, and backyard guest houses online, but now you can turn your backyard into a relaxing oasis with a DIY outdoor sauna!

You may be thinking… it’s summer, so why would I want a sauna? 🤷🏼‍♀️ Glad you asked! Even during those warmer months, a sauna can help you burn calories, lose weight, improve your cardiovascular health and respiratory function – and of course, it relaxes your muscles and feels great. Sounds amazing, right?! 😍

Even sweeter, these outdoor sauna kits are delivered to your doorstep completely free. Plus, they can be built with minimal tools and have lots of sizes and options to choose from!

Here are some of the best outdoor saunas to buy:

1. Get a Nordic lodge look with this wood-burning sauna.

If you want something more unique and still comfortably seat 12 people inside, this option will give your backyard a Nordic-style lodge look. Plus, you can order it in either electric or wood-burning. We’re already imagining the amazing scent inside if you order wood-burning.

We can totally see this cozy sauna being a frequently-visited backyard getaway in colder climates! And although the sauna is the priciest on our list, if you have a big family or friends often visit, there’s no better option.  🙌

2. Seclude yourself with this double-room outdoor sauna kit.

If you envision yourself gathering with more friends, then this can host you and 7 of your closest friends. Although it’s going to cost you a spendy amount, the capacity is much larger than some other options if you entertain frequently.

    I definitely need one with a pool right next to it. Back and forth all day long.

    • alexis-3

      Pools are great but very overrated! I’ve had mine for 12+ years and once the kids have left I may get in once a year! It’s up and running year round here in GA but over the years it’s not that important to me although when we built I just HAD TO HAVE IT! Just sharing my opinion!

    • mommanguyen

      I agree with Alexis-3. Very overrated. Cost to maintain is high and insurance goes up with a pool. We had ours taken out because it wasn’t worth it. We built a fire pit where the pool used to be and it gets a 1000x more use and is usable all year around.

      • shop4mybabies

        my neighbor that has a pool doesn’t affect me at all. but my neighbor with a fire pit burns constantly and makes it so we can’t open our own windows in a house we’ve owned for 20 years. we are asthmatic and i loathe the fire pit pyros. lol bring on the pool any day!

        • Elizabeth

          UGH – YES! Our neighbors used to burn stuff all the time and it makes me crazy in the fall/spring/summer on cooler nights when you want your windows open but can’t. My husband has bad asthma since he was a child. It’s under control with medication and he’s a long distance runner but one smoky night with their fire pit blowing into the house and he is wheezing and needing his rescue inhaler. He can run 10 miles up and down hills without but the stupid fire makes it bad. It sucks. I love camp fires but do not need it blowing into my windows and stinking up my house.

    In the Arizona heat, a pool is the only way to go. Well worth the maintenance and the cost for insurance and to maintain isn’t much really.

  3. Monique

    I live in a sauna 🧖‍♀️ here in vegas lol definitely don’t need to buy one with 120° days that we have had and yes pools are great! People who have them here definitely use them in my experience 🙂

  4. Sherry

    I lucked out with mine. A guy was moving and sold it for $300. That was several years ago. And it works.

  5. romy

    i live in south florida – i could just go sit in my backyard shed for a sauna. it’s not as cute as these are though 🙂

  6. E

    We looked at a rental house that had a portable sauna inside it when we were looking a few years ago. It was in one of the bedrooms. Was not fancy like these! I’d love a pool but maintenance doesn’t sound fun. We have a neighborhood one down the street which is perfect— no maintenance, no raise in insurance, no issues. We’re there all the time and I’m sure we would use one in the yard, it’s just too much of a liability.
