Tough and timeless, the AlumiTub is built to outperform traditional cedar hot tubs. Bringing its form in harmony with the functions off-grid cabin owners need, it stands in a class of its own. A 100% Canadian made wood fired hot tub, precision-built and expertly crafted to stand the test of time, it offers a chance to immerse ourselves in the good company of the great outdoors. A place to gather with loved ones, siblings, cousins, friends, neighbors and all. A time to do nothing other than find contentment as we log off for the weekend and put another one on the fire.
For gathering with good company. Whether it be your own or with the whole family, AlumiTubs come in two sizes. A solo retreat, a time to connect with a significant other, or a place to gather any and all.
Deep enough to keep even the tallest member of your party plenty warm (no cold shoulders here), not so deep that your smaller ones can’t enjoy a seat at the table.
Standard size (2 to 5 person hot tub) is 71 inches in diameter, 220 lbs empty / 5000 lbs filled, 38 inches deep
Large size (8 to 10 person hot tub) is 84 inches in diameter, 300 lbs empty / 7000 lbs filled, 38 inches deep

Wood burning hot tub
The AlumiTub is formed by a marine grade aluminum foundation as a pre-assembled, lightweight unit that can be rolled off a truck, into a boat, along a dock and into place on any flat surface.
- Its pre-installed marine grade aluminum firebox is submerged in water for unparalleled heating performance, and is safe to touch under water with protective fencing that keeps bodies from coming into contact with its stainless steel chimney and cap.
- Canadian Western Red cedar seating is planed and pre-installed to perfectly accommodate a solo soaker or the whole family, and rough cut cedar cladding surrounds the exterior of the tub with three stainless steel bands, nuts and bolts securing them in place.
- A drain sits on the wall or base of the tub to accommodate different drainage needs, and flanges allow for external heating system compatibility.
- Waterproof batt insulation provides a third layer of thermal protection for all season use, even in the most extreme winter conditions, along with rigid insulation to place beneath the cedar lid and the base of the hot tub for additional heat performance in very cold weather.
- Multi fuel compatibility for wood fire, propane, gas or electric heating flexibility.

Near or far, on or off the map. AlumiTubs were designed for off-grid living. Refined for residential use, our wood fired hot tub is compatible with filtration and external heating systems like propane, natural gas, electricity or solar, so you can find the same form of escape in your own backyard. A wood fired hot tub made for life at the cabin, whether you have one or not. When the anticipation of the soak is pulling you in, you can accelerate the heat time by using both simultaneously, or set it on cruise control when adventure leads you away from the firebox. And where water is scarce, or where it can’t be renewably sourced from the natural environment, filtration reduces wasted resources by maintaining clean soaking water for months at a time, just as an electric hot tub would.
Rustic in nature with timeless appeal, the AlumiTub has a natural aesthetic that entwines with nature. The enduring materials connect with its surrounding landscape. Holding the classic beauty of a traditional cedar hot tub, made only more enduring thanks to its marine grade foundation. The sustainably sourced Canadian Western Red cedar silvers and grays like the best of us as time marches on, and infinitely recyclable marine grade aluminum develops a patina from the years of water that filled it. With the great passage of time and collected memory, its age only adds more dimension.
Built to perform, we took every opportunity to add unexpected function, rigor and grit. Canadians know winter, and one thing we know for sure is that you’ll never worry about being cold in an AlumiTub. Our triple insulated wood burning hot tub uses an internally submerged firebox, holding its heat with just an armful of wood a day. With unparalleled heat performance, we guarantee your AlumiTub will get hot and stay hot, even in sub zero temperatures.
Have your cake and eat it too. Off-grid or on, the tub's hot. Wood fired at its core with alternatives to heat it your way, dual-fuel compatibility provides the same convenience of an electric hot tub in a more sustainable, economical, and aesthetically appealing way.

AlumiTubs pioneered the original aluminum hot tub in 2001 to outperform traditional cedar hot tubs. Designed for life at the cabin and customizable for residential use, our wood fired hot tub was the first of its kind. Handbuilt with a marine grade aluminum foundation for unparalleled performance, we're often imitated, never duplicated.
AlumiTubs are made with FSC certified Canadian Western Red Cedar from responsibly managed forests on the west coast of British Columbia. Durable, long lasting, and renewable, our wood is harvested using sustainable forestry practices, grown and milled right here in our backyard.
A wood fired hot tub is the near definition of warm comforts - a place for simple pleasures and for sharing the finer moments together, in the great outdoors. Like a drive through the countryside, we lend ourselves a little more fully to the moment. To those we share it with, and to the beauty that surrounds us as we follow nature’s lead.
See how it works
Log off for the weekend and lay one on the fire
A retreat from screens, honking horns, and to-do lists. Starry nights and space in every direction. Where highways become backroads, escaping to a place with more trees than people. Fully focused on the task at hand, where it smells like wood and feels like home - we find rural life at its best. The sound of silence broken by crackles coming from the fire, it offers an appeal that is truly universal. As we soak in the goodness of a wood fired hot tub, there's a deep seated certainty that it's time well spent.

One of our best investments we've ever made! Perfecting the art & science of building the optimal fire and temp of our tub has been a fun & enriching experience. It's given us a greater appreciation for the natural beauty of our property and for hot & cold therapy. We experienced a significant uptick in off-season rentals at our vacation property. All to say, our AlumiTub investment has paid back in spades both personally and financially.

Much better than our old wooden hot tub. Really good people and product. Easier and cleaner than the wooden one. We get to -30F around here. I put extra insulation on the top. Water will hold its heat for a long time. We bought the hot spring to us and it's been worth every penny. Great way to start your Sunday in Interior Alaska. Get yourself one. Good people and great product.
WE LOVE OUR HOT TUB! It has increased airbnb bookings 10 fold! It's a huge hit. This beautiful aluminum tub is located at our Airbnb property @cabin_on_the_river in Narrowsburg, NY in the western Catskills/ upper Delaware valley. The hut tub is just steps to the ten mile river. We fill the hot tub thru a sub pump right from the river.
It's currently overlooking the Northumberland Strait. It's very close to being filled with water from the Strait. We are very excited! Thank you for going the extra mile for us. You were calm, courteous and comforting. It's great knowing that there are still great people/companies who genuinely care about their customers!

No words. Best hot tub of our lives! Easy to set up and enjoy the same night! The hubs made some quick stairs from all the packaging, down to the last screw. Thanks again to you and the team!! Go Canada made. Thanks for making an amazing product
A wood-fired hot tub, a cold beverage (I prefer champagne to keep it classy lololol), surrounded by trees encrusted in front and snow...this is winter. Just add friends and laughter
