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 products do not rely on electricity or plumbing, you can enjoy our hot tubs and saunas anywhere – on your deck, in your yard, or elsewhere on your property (although we do offer a full line of electrically powered options). 

Founded Vancouver Island, British Columbia in 2014 by a group of outdoor enthusiast 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, outdoor appliances and accommodations. Perfect for the do it yourself-er and anyone with novice wood working skills will have no issues setting up our products themselves.

Our wood fire hot tubs & saunas are perfect for the off the grid cabin, chalet, lake house, cottage or recreational property. Looking for a off grid bunkie or setting up a glamping business? We have you covered! Our products are 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 of the Unites States. 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. That’s why our products feature high-grade woods, such as Western Red Cedar from British Columbia, and Scandinavian Thermowood from Estonia. 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 with each.

All of 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, 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. 

Huge savings with the highest quality

At its foundation, a great product starts with high-quality materials that have been proven to stand the test of time. That is why we carefully select each one in order to create the most durable and enjoyable hot tubs & saunas we can.
