Hikki Bohemen, Hot Tub

Badger Safari tent has the benefit of the privet use of our Scandinavian Hikki Bohemen, wood fired hot tub.

The Bohemen hot tub allows you to soak in Scandinavian luxury. Featuring a built-in wood fired stove. The hot tub offers a unique outside bathing experience. The tub has an inviting oak wood interior filled with  fresh water. It can accommodate up to two adults in comfort. There are no flashy lights or fountains and jets. The Bohemen hot tub offers a natural clean, authentic, wood-fired bathing experience. The water is freshly changed for each use, to offer relaxing outdoors bathing comfort. 

The hot tub is an optional extra which can be added on a nightly rate to your stay at time of booking. It is not included in the tent rental. We will fill the tub with fresh water and set up the wood in the internal stove ready for you to light when you are ready. You will need to feed the stove with wood every 10-15mins until the water reaches the correct temperature. The fire must not be allowed to flame above the water line and the lid of the stove should be kept in the closed position to prevent the seat becoming burnt. The heating can take around 2hours and requires close attention to keep the fire going. Full instructions on its safe use will be given on hire. The hot tub is ideal if you are planning a relaxed evening with a book.
