Wyld Sauna planning UK first for this summer

Continuing Liverpool's long association with Scandinavia, a nordic sauna will be coming to the city's waterside. 

Wyld Sauna plans to launch its first UK outdoor floating sauna at Princes Dock this summer following its application to Liverpool City Council.

We are thrilled to be launching this UK-first in such a perfect location

The floating sauna will be made up of a pontoon with a 30-person sauna decked out with ice baths, waterfall showers, changing rooms and outdoor seating. 

This follows the surge in recent years of interest in the likes of ice baths, cold water immersion and Scandinavian health activities more generally. 

Jon Miller, Co-Founder of WYLD Sauna, said: “We are thrilled to be launching this UK-first in such a perfect location. There really is nothing better than being able to dip into cold, fresh water after a sauna. Princes Dock is the ideal site for us, where we can contribute to the thriving community of local swimmers, runners and scuba divers. 

“We’re big believers in the health and social benefits that come with saunas, and want to make sure it’s available to as many people as possible. That’s why we’re making sure access to this high-quality wellbeing experience will be possible at an affordable price.”

Liza Marco, Senior Asset Manager for Liverpool Waters, said: “We are all very excited to see this remarkable addition to the waterside in what will be a UK first. The WYLD Sauna will fit right in at Liverpool Waters, with the docks already alive with open water swimming, canoeing and scuba diving, alongside the occasional dragon boat race and international canoe polo tournaments!

Residents, commercial tenants, and visitors can now enjoy an even greater range of healthy activities alongside bars, cafes, restaurants and hotels – there is something for everyone at Princes Dock.” 

WYLD Sauna will be open from early to late, Monday to Sunday, and sessions will be on a pay as you go basis starting from £5 an hour. 

Bookings will open two weeks before launch.
