How it all started
It all started in 2020 when my wife Amy and I had the idea to rent a sauna for the Christmas holidays but couldn’t find any such service here in Victoria. As is usually the case for me, I wound up building our own sauna from scratch.
Using and enjoying our own sauna regularly made me think that there would be many others who might be interested in the health benefits of sauna ownership.
At Wildwood Saunas we wish to share the sauna experience with those who perhaps don’t have the budget to invest or space to build their own sauna. Our Community Sauna events or mobile sauna rental program is a great way to enjoy a private wood-fired sauna for an affordable price at a local beach or conveniently delivered to your own home!
Meet founder Josh Dupuis
Ever since I was a young boy, I have always enjoyed learning and building things including go-carts, tree houses, driving drift trike coolers, rafts and all kinds of other contraptions.
I have been doing carpentry since I was fifteen years old. At age 21, I entered the world of commercial refrigeration and obtained my Red Seal designation in HVAC-R and helped build grocery stores all over Canada for the past 8 years. Through my on-the-job experience I’ve also acquired working skills in plumbing, heating, electrical, carpentry (including finishing) and air conditioning.
I am passionate about health and wellness, including ways we can improve our daily lives through action, persistence and keeping our bodies performing at peak levels. This is why I am so ardent when it comes to the use of saunas; because I notice the unparalleled benefits from first-hand daily use and am genuinely excited to help others feel that same level of enjoyment and self-care.
