Takhini Hot Springs, Whitehorse
(3.4/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Soak in the warm waters of the earth at the two pools of Takhini Hot Springs. Water rushes out of the earth at 48 C (118 F) and splits into two pools, a warm one closer to where the water emerges and a cooler pool further away. When you arrive, you are given flip flops to enter, a towel, use of the changing rooms, and a padlock to keep your items safe. Request a watch to time your soak. After a soak, you can visit the on-site restaurant. Put Takhini Hot Springs on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Whitehorse family vacation planner.

  • These hot springs are well maintained and very nice. The employees were helpful and friendly. There is also a restaurant on the property that makes for a great calming evening. 
  • After a long day, it's great to end up here with your friends. Just get into the pools and relax. The contrast between hot and cold feels great in your body 
  • Monday night visit. It was not busy and a cheap activity. I was impressed to see that it is drained every night. Remember your towel, flip flops and lock. Watch for elk on the road driving into the ho...  more »

  • Not a massive hot springs, literally as if someone put some hot tub like structures together and then used a pipe to feed the water into it. It is far from the city so minimal light pollution. Remember to bring a lock and flip flops for yourself.
  • The hot springs are pumped into concrete pools daily, the comments regarding the bugs need to be taken lightly since the waters are not filtered nor chlorinated so the sulphides will attract bugs... Just go to Liard and see the bugs there and you will understand. Great staff and not too busy. If they were more rustic without the concrete they would have gotten 5 stars but I understand that isn't always feasible
  • Wonderful place to relax in lovely scenery, and it's scheduled for improvements so is only going to get better. A must-do when visiting Whitehorse. Has a nice cafe - serving delicious crepes - attached!
  • Hot pools were wonderful - about a minute walk. The RV park was quiet and clean. Many rules were posted. Our fire pit was dug into the ground, so a fire could not get enough air to burn. The electrical 30 amp receptacle was upside down and on the wrong side. The electrical service was right where you walked into it if you pulled in as directed. No water for rinsing at the dumps station.
  • After a week hard work, this is definitely the best place to go to relax myself. Small and quiet, plus only 30 mins away from the town. I just love it!
