Sauna in a Tent

Sauna in a Tent? Here's a quick run-down of how this goes: 

Prepare the Sauna Area:

  • Choose a suitable location for the sauna, ensuring it's on a flat and stable surface, away from flammable materials and objects.
  • Assemble the Skylight Sauna pop-up tent. Make sure all windows are closed to retain heat.


Set Up the Wood-Fired Sauna Stove:
  • Place the wood-fired portable sauna stove inside the tent, ensuring it is stable and level.
  • Extend the stove's fold-out legs to provide proper support.
  • Assemble the chimney on top of the stove and guide it through the designated opening in the roof of the tent. This will help vent the smoke outside.

Prepare the Sauna Rocks:
  • Place your rocks on top of the wood-fired stove's grate. Ensure you have enough rocks to cover the stove's surface without blocking the airflow.

Start the Fire:
  • Use kindling and firewood to light a fire inside the sauna stove. Follow the stove's instructions to ignite the fire safely.
  • Allow the fire to burn and heat up the sauna rocks. This process usually takes 20 mins or less!
  • Heat the Sauna to your desired temperature. 
  • Use a sauna thermometer to monitor the temperature inside the tent.
  • As the fire heats the rocks, the sauna temperature will rise. Adjust the airflow and the amount of wood burning to control the heat inside the sauna.

Add Water for Steam:
  • Once the sauna reaches the desired temperature, use the ladle to pour water over the hot sauna rocks. Be cautious of steam and hot air when adding water.
  • The water will create a burst of steam inside the sauna, increasing humidity and enhancing the sauna experience.

Cool Down and Hydrate:
  • After your sauna session, step out of the tent and cool down. You can use a nearby shower, plunge into cold water, or relax in a cool outdoor area.
  • Rehydrate your body with water or a refreshing drink to replace lost fluids during and after the sauna session.

Clean Up:
  • Allow the sauna stove and rocks to cool down completely before handling or storing.
  • Ensure all ashes and debris are removed from the stove.
  • Disassemble the chimney and stove for storage or transportation.
  • Disassemble the sauna tent and zip up the bag (only a few minutes). 

Remember, safety is paramount when using a wood-fired sauna stove. Always follow local fire safety codes and guidelines for assembly, use, and maintenance of equipment. Enjoy your rejuvenating sauna experience!
