Temperature range

Sauna and its temperature zones

The different temperature ranges in a sauna

There are different types of saunas with temperatures that could not be more different. Finnish saunas often reach temperatures between 80 and 100°C (176 to 212 °F). A distinction is often made between traditional Finnish saunas and dry saunas, the only real difference, between the two being that in the Finnish sauna water is poured onto the stone.
