Löyly – The Sauna People

Löyly are the quintessential sauna designers and fitters for the North of England and Southern Scotland. Here at Löyly, sauna is more than just our passion, it is our world! We have spent years refining designs, sourcing quality materials and learning first-hand what makes the perfect sauna. As inventors and masters of the sauna, the Finns know how to do a sauna right. We have learned this and use it in all our sauna designs to ensure only the highest quality sauna experience. This is why we are proud to call ourselves “The Sauna People”.

Our ethos

At Löyly we believe in using only the highest quality materials in our saunas. We only install genuine Finnish made and designed Sauna heaters bearing the Finnish Key flag symbol, such as Narvi, Aito and Kota. Not only do these stoves last longer than competing brands but are renowned for their perfect löyly. We guarantee our work and we truly believe that if you are going to have a sauna, you ought to do it properly, as the Finns intended!

What does Löyly mean?

Löyly is a Finnish word that literally translate as the ‘sauna heat’ or the ‘steam that rises from the stones’. In Finno-Ugric culture however, its meaning is perhaps a little more esoteric. It encompasses aspects such as the sauna environment (inside and out), the quality of the atmosphere, as well as the mood of the sauna.

What makes a good löyly?

In the literal sense, a good löyly is about having a lot of sauna stones, evenly heated by a high quality stove. Narvi, Aito and Kota heaters pride themselves on having the most stones in each class of heater they sell. A good löyly should be a pleasant warming feeling, not an uncomfortable direct heat. This is done by ensuring the amount of heated metal is minimal compared to the sauna stones. In the broader sense, the perfect löyly comes from a beautifully designed sauna, in a great setting, with excellent company. Making the perfect löyly that much more enjoyable is that Narvi, Aito and Kota heaters have the strictest emissions standards on the market.


Quality doesn’t always mean high cost. Sauna projects can be adapted to fit your precise needs including price. We maintain our high quality material standards and excellent workmanship because we believe that a Sauna is a purchase you should only have to make once. As with any home improvement, if you do it right the first time, you can truly enjoy it for years.

Whether you want a small sauna in your house; a kit-form Finnish sauna cabin on your deck, or a bespoke luxury garden sauna, contact us today for a consultation.
