About Us

A True West Coast Company

At Backcountry Recreation our products are beautiful but not flashy. If you want cup holders, molded seats, glossy coatings, and built-in speakers, you should look elsewhere. Instead, we offer you simple and beautiful elegance – clean and pure natural materials and an aesthetic that will look beautiful next to any home or cabin. With our collection of wood burning hot tubs and saunas they can be set up in the most hard to reach and beautiful off grid locations -and if you have the ability for it - we do offer a full line of electrical powered options as well.

Founded on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, in 2014 by a group of outdoor enthusiasts, Backcountry Recreation knows what it's like to be remote, cut off, removed from the hustle and bustle of the city - and we like it that way! On our countless adventures into the wilderness up to the lake house or off to the cabin there is one thing that always stood out to us as the perfect way to end the day -  a piping hot, muscle-soothing stress-releasing hot tub or sauna!

Our wood fire hot tubs & saunas are perfect for the off-the-grid cabin, lake house, cottage or any recreational property. Our products are perfect for difficult-to-reach spots, always make a charming addition to any property and can be delivered to major depots anywhere in Canada or the United States for pick up. If you can imagine it, we can make it happen!

Our Mission

We want our customers to be completely satisfied with our products. Our designs feature high-grade woods, such as Western Red Cedar from British Columbia, Scandinavian Thermowood from Estonia and Scandinavian Spruce. We also use polished stainless steel for our sauna bands and submersible wood-burning hot tub stoves, allowing us to feel confident in providing a one-year warranty on all hot tub and sauna orders.

Backcountry Recreation partners with best-in-class manufacturers and distributors to bring you a curated selection of hot tub and sauna products. We carefully select our partners to ensure quality. 

Simple DIY Assembly 

All Backcountry Recreations kits contain all you will need for assembly and use. The wood materials in our hot tubs and saunas typically last at least 15-20 years when cared for well,  giving you a long time for enjoyment. Because wood is a natural product, the life expectancy can vary depending on your local climate, how you care for the wood, and where on your property you locate the unit. 

If you have any questions during your assembly we are available to schedule you a support call and trouble shoot any issues with you. Note our support line is open on business hours 9am -5pm PST. 1 887 446 3565 - option 2.
