DIY Sauna


Rebecca L.

Summer is almost upon us here in British Columbia, and it’s getting pretty busy at the campsites round about now. I love camping, it’s one of my favorite things to do at the weekend, but it’s still pretty cold right now in the evenings. Although I love nothing more than wrapping up in my thermals and sitting around a campfire with my friends, I’ve been looking to try my hand at making a DIY outdoor sauna on my next trip.
The strategy is pretty simple, all you have to do is get your fire blazing, heat up some rocks and fashion a seamless contraption to trap the steam in. Sounds simple right? But it also sounds pretty risky too. I’ve been researching the best materials for the structure, and I think on my next trip I’ll use a tarp or an old tent. But check out these guys making a sauna out in the middle of winter using plastic wrap. It’s pretty cool. Personally, I don’t think I’d want to use plastic wrap…it’s pretty wasteful and I would prefer to use something that I could reuse again and again, but the structure looks legit!
