(420+ reviews on the web)
Hot Spring Nature / Park
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.

  • This place seemed to be busy nonstop. The restaurant there is amazing, and has absolutely delicious dinner crepes. The pools were nice and hot.  more »
  • Came here for a nice relaxing soak after a long travel day. Really simple but nice place to hang out for a bit. Reasonably priced, and popular with locals - it's a good place to just relax. A few thin...  more »
  • It is truly a hot pool that empties each night. The place is clean and the staff extremely friendly. Two pool areas with one pool much warmer than the other. Easy access.  more »

  • I would say that it definitely wasent what I was expecting of a hotsprings, I've been to a few and this one was a pool surrounded by ugly fence and plastic glass blocking any view of the mountains that surrounds the area. Not to mention the cameras looking at you in the pool with 1000 rules to follow. I think next time I will just spend the money to sit in the hot tub at the pool.
  • Great staff! Welcoming front desk. Good to have a warm dip in the cold weather.
  • 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
  • Amazing place great and friendly staff.. price was not bad considering you could stay there the whole day.
  • 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.
