Wood fired sauna are the most traditional and instinctually satisfying. If you've never chopped your wood, stoked your sauna fire, smelled the smoke, felt the blast of steam and the good sweat of a wood-fired sauna, endeavor to try it. Then if your game roll in the snow or jump in a frozen lake. I kept an old clawfoot bathtub around for this very reason – fill and plunge!
