About Us

A True West Coast Company

Backcountry Recreation stands as a testament to the serene and unspoiled beauty of Vancouver Island, Canada, where we were founded in 2014 by a group of passionate outdoor enthusiasts. Our products exude the simple, elegant charm of this magnificent region – favoring natural materials and a clean, understated aesthetic that complements any home or cabin. Our collection, ranging from wood-burning hot tubs to saunas, is perfectly suited for the most remote and picturesque off-grid locations, while also offering a range of electrically powered options for those who desire them.

Our journey began in the heart of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, amidst its lush wilderness and tranquil shores. At Backcountry Recreation, we understand the allure of being remote, away from the city's clamor, because that's where our story started. From adventures in the wilderness to relaxing at lake houses or cabins, we've always known the unrivaled pleasure of concluding a day with a hot, soothing soak in a hot tub or a calming session in a sauna.

Our wood fire hot tubs and saunas are not just products; they are invitations to embrace the off-the-grid lifestyle, whether at a cabin, lake house, or cottage. Crafted to blend seamlessly into any setting and easily transported to even the most inaccessible locations in Canada or the United States, our creations are more than just luxury items – they're a way of life.

Our Mission

We are committed to your total satisfaction with our offerings. Our designs feature premium materials like Western Red Cedar from British Columbia, Scandinavian Thermowood from Estonia, and Scandinavian Spruce. With polished stainless steel for our sauna bands and submersible wood-burning hot tub stoves, we confidently back our products with a one-year warranty.

In partnership with leading manufacturers and distributors, Backcountry Recreation delivers a handpicked selection of top-tier hot tub and sauna products. We choose our partners with care, ensuring that every product meets our high standards of quality.
