The history of saunas is long and interesting, and so is their current popularity. Originating somewhere in northern Europe around 2,000 BC, saunas are still an integral part of cultural life in many countries including Estonia, Russia, Latvia and Finland. Meant as a room for people to relax in dry heat and to beat winter, these structures have evolved for a modern lifestyle.
Estonian saunas are particularly popular, with many holding the status of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The saunas of the yore in the country have retained their old-world charm and are still in use. Estonian brand Iglucraft is exporting stunningly designed saunas all around the world and recently making headlines is the company’s newest prefab backyard sauna, christened Iglusauna.
This backyard sauna comes in exciting color options that blend seamlessly with nature while allowing you to relax in its exquisite and high-end interior. Paying homage to the sauna’s roots, the new prefab single Iglusauna comes equipped with big windows, curved seating, new lighting and a new neutral color palette for shingles.
The spruce wood sauna comes with moody dark charcoal shingles that complement the new lighting brilliantly. Its calm aesthetics and charming interior will help you relax and unwind without having to venture out to a spa or sauna.
Moreover, the Iglucraft Single Iglusauna can fit up to four people with ease. You can choose between a wood-fired stove or an electric one, which should come as a challenge as both provide numerous benefits for health and well-being.
Measuring 8.3’ x 7.8’ x 6.5’ and weighing 1984 lbs, the backyard sauna provides 42 square feet of space. Available for €12,900 (~ $13,800), the eye-catching Iglusauna boasts a steaming experience like none other.
