About Us

A true west coast company

Our products are beautiful, but not flashy. If you want cup-holders, molded seats, glossy coatings, and built-in speakers, you should look elsewhere. What we offer you is simple and beautiful elegance – clean and pure natural materials and an aesthetic that will look beautiful next to any home or cabin. Because our hot tubs do not rely on electricity or plumbing, you can enjoy our hot tubs anywhere – on your deck, in your yard, or elsewhere on your property. 

Founded Vancouver Island, British Columbia Backcountry Recreation knows what its 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 end to the day, a piping hot,  muscle-soothing stress releasing hot tub or sauna. 

This is the backbone of Backcountry Recreation, remote location hot tubs, sauna kits and outdoor appliances. Perfect for the do it yourself-er and anyone with novice wood working skills will have no issues setting one of these up.

Our wood fire hot tubs & saunas are perfect for the off the grid cabin, chalet, lake house, cottage or recreational property. They perfect for the difficult to reach spots and always make a charming addition to any property. Our classic designs compliment any backdrop and can be delivered and installed anywhere in Canada. If you can imagine it, we can make it happen.


Our mission

We want our customers to be completely satisfied with our products. Each product we sell is tailored to the individual customer’s needs and requirements – no compromises.

100% Canadian Grade A Cedar hot tub kits from Backcountry Recreations contain all you will need for assembly and use, including a submersible stove made 304 stainless steel. The wood burning stove comes with a warranty to protect against defects and workmanship for one full year, although the majority of our hot tubs last for at least 20+ years.

Huge savings

We offer very few wholesale opportunities and only use the highest quality materials currently available in the hot tub and sauna market, and you get the end product for up to 70% off the retail price.
