You can go for the two cold pools, one of which offers icy waters at a temperature of 5 C (40 F). The water from the springs has been used as pain relief since the times of the Ktunaxa people.

  • A bit out of the way but worth dropping by. You can have your things put in a numbered cubbyhole. Towels are available for a fee. Water in the cave is very hot. The plunge pool is cold. The swimming pool is warm. The air is fresh. The landscaping is colorful.
  • Stopped in while riding motorcycles from new Denver to Nelson. Great place to stop for a soak in the coolest hot springs ever! There is a large warm pool which is about 100°f. But the real gem is the hot pool. It has a smaller seating area that leads into a horshoe cave that is about 125ft long. The water comes in from a few spots at 110°f straight from under the mountain. This water is completely natural and untreated. The caves are a must see! The change rooms do not have lockers so bring a bag for your stuff and they will securely store it for you or sell you a bag for .50$ they also rent towels for $2 with a $5 refundable deposit.
  • Loved these hot springs. We will definitely try to get back here in the future. The caves are the best feature - very hot water and steamy, like a sauna. The pool is also a great temperature for enjoying for an hour. The cold plunge pool was a nice option for a brief dip. The food and service at the restaurant was quite good and we had a great view of the lake and mountain from our hotel room.
  • Gorgeous location. They have renovated so it looks way different than most pictures online. The rooms are beautiful beds are amazingly comfortable. Great view of the lake. Oh.. and unlimited hot springs and cave/steam room visits. Passes included in your stay! So worth it!
  • Excellent hot springs as the side with the "cave" gets extremely hot water and becomes very sauna like which is really fantastic. Would recommend buying the big plastics bag on the way in if you don't have a decent sized bag. There is no lockers so everything you are leaving must fit in the bag and it gets given back to the front desk staff which is probably safer than lockers.
