The only difference is that in a dry sauna no water is thrown on the sauna stove to get steam vapor.


One major difference between a wet sauna and a dry sauna is the temperature necessary in both types of saunas. Because humid air more effectively transmits heat, the temperature in a wet sauna is lower than the temperature in a dry sauna. Dry sauna temperatures can approach 200 degrees Fahrenheit; because the heat is so dry, however, the bather's sweat evaporates quickly and the heat is tolerable.

Hi, --------- Dry sauna is dry (no mist, low humidity) while wet sauna is humid and mist (sometimes it's hard to see, as if you are in a heavy fog). Some people find that it is hard for them to breath in a wet sauna and prefer a dry sauna. --------- Best regards,
