Setup and Takedown of Sauna Tent

Sauna tents offer a convenient and portable way to enjoy the benefits of a sauna in the comfort of your own space.

Whether you're a seasoned sauna enthusiast or a newcomer, setting up and taking down a sauna tent can seem daunting at first.

However, with the right guidance, it's a straightforward process.

In this blog, we'll walk you through the steps to set up and take down your sauna tent effectively.

Setting Up Your Sauna Tent:

Step 1: Choose the Right Location 

Select a suitable location for your sauna tent. Ensure it's a flat and stable surface, away from flammable materials and with enough space to accommodate the tent comfortably.

Step 2: Unpack and Inspect

Begin by unpacking your sauna tent and laying out all the components. Inspect them to make sure everything is in good condition and that you have all the necessary parts, including the sauna tent, rain cover, stove, wood, and any additional accessories.

Step 3: Assemble the Frame

Follow our instructions to pop out the frame on your sauna tent. Typically, this involves popping out the 4 outsides than popping the roof into place. Accomplish this by pulling on the webbing at the outside center of each wall. (3 Minutes or less)

Step 4: Attach the Rain Tent Cover (If it is raining)

Drape the sauna tent cover over the assembled sauna tent. Make sure it's centered and fits snugly. Secure it in place by attaching the provided clips and straps. 

Step 5: Set Up the Stove

Setup the stove under the roof vent by folding out the legs and stacking the chimney up so it runs straight up from the stove through the vent. Ensure it's safe and properly connected to the wood stove. Add the sauna stones to the top of the stove.

Step 6: Prepare the Interior 

Place any sauna accessories, such as a sauna chair or bench, inside the tent. Arrange them for your comfort and convenience. Make sure there's enough space for you to sit or lie down comfortably. Collect warm water to use for creating steam. 

Step 7: Preheat the Sauna

Add wood to the stove and allow the sauna to preheat to your desired temperature. This can take roughly half an hour, depending on the sauna's size and environmental conditions.

Using Your Sauna:

Enjoy your sauna session, ensuring you follow safety guidelines and recommendations for temperature and duration. Common practices include throwing water on the rocks to create steam, using essential oils for aromatherapy, and cooling in cold water once fully heated.

Taking Down Your Sauna Tent:


Step 1: Remove heat from the stove 

Before dismantling your sauna tent, remove heat from the stove. Allow it to cool down completely to prevent burns.

Step 2: Remove Accessories 

Take out any accessories, such as the sauna bench, thermometer, and bucket/ladle from the tent.

Step 3: Detach the Tent Cover 

Unclip or unfasten the rain cover from the tent sauna. Carefully fold and set it aside for storage.

Step 4: Break Down the Frame 

Starting with the sides, push in to collapse the sauna tent. Once all 4 sides are collapsed, the roof can be collapsed, and the tent can be folded up. Ensure the tent is properly stored and organized.

Step 5: Pack Everything Away 

Neatly pack all components, including the tent, rain cover, stove (if separate), and accessories, back into their original carrying bags or storage containers. Keep them in a cool, dry place.

Setting up and taking down a sauna tent may require a bit of time and effort initially, but with practice, it becomes a breeze.

Enjoy the convenience of having a sauna experience at your fingertips, and always remember to follow safety precautions to ensure a relaxing and enjoyable sauna session.

Happy sauna-ing! :')
