The World's Coolest Saunas

There’s no better place than a sauna to ease tired muscles, get rid of aches and pains and generally escape the rat race. But if you want something that does more than just get you into a sweat, how about a sauna that’s located in a gondola over the Finnish mountains? Or a traditional Andean hothouse in Machu Picchu, made from eucalyptus leaves? For an amazing view, try the sauna that looks out onto the Dolomites, or Koi Sauna, with its aquarium of fish to gaze at while you perspire.

Artists and architects around the world have experimented with saunas, turning many of them into beautiful works of art. What better way to let off some steam? Ahead, we give you a run down of the coolest out there...
