Steam Hut

In an electrically powered boat the captain will bring you to one of the few small waterways not open to pleasure boats. On the banks the fire master will be bringing a hut to full steam for your visit. In the middle of the Biesbosch national park, body and mind are afforded an opportunity to surrender to nature. The design for this three-person Steam Hut was inspired by the history and properties of this nature area. The wood stove brings the temperature to 70 degrees Celsius, the herbs that lie ready create relaxing fragrances, and outside a naturally cold plunge pool awaits.
