So…this is our story


sauna | Winnipeg was established in 2019 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. We operated from the picturesque and historic location of The Forks in Winnipeg.  We offered to the public our three pillars – Community | Health | Fun


People could rent time in our saunas, use our facilities, relax and enjoy the scenery at The Forks.

And then, COVID hit, and we had to close. As sad as it was to close (temporarily we hope), it opened the door to a new possibility, which has become a reality.


This past winter, whilst our doors have been closed, we have been working with Sputnik Architecture – designing and building boutique saunas. And, let us tell you, these saunas are BEAUTIFUL! As nice as the barrel saunas are, they are nothing compared to our sleek design.


If you invest in one of our saunas, you’re investing in your health.

Below is what we offered last year (pre-pandemic) and what we will improve on in the future!

90 Mins of Sauna Time

For 90 minutes, you and your party will have access to our premises. This includes a private sauna experience, access to our reception cabin, and our outdoor fire.

Before you arrive

You can reserve for a private group of up to six people and this can be done through our website. It is always polite to shower ahead of time. Please bring a bathing suit, footwear,  and a refillable water bottle. Beverages are available on site. Water and tea are complimentary. Robes are available for rent. Each guest will be given two towels.


A typical sauna session is a cycle of heat, followed by a blast of cold, and finally, air. Most people sit in a sauna for 10-15 minutes, followed by a cold shower or a jump in the snow, and then outside air for about 5-10 minutes. Drinking water and being properly hydrated is highly recommended during air time.
