It is famous for the smell it offers and the warmth that slowly penetrates into the body. It also creates a soothing and relaxing atmosphere and takes the mind away. Wood fired saunas are also popular because they do not need electricity, and so can be installed anywhere.

Smoke saunas: The difference between wood saunas and smoke saunas is that, unlike wood saunas, the latter does not have a chimney. This implies that the smoke of wood completely fills the room, thus inundating the body with the intense smell of wood smoke.

Electric Saunas: One of the most common sauna options for houses and apartments, these saunas do not require wood to burn. Which means the stones and the rooms are heated with electricity. Very easy to maintain and install.
