Takhini Hot Springs, Whitehorse

3.6
#3 of 9 in Nature in Yukon
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.

    the place is ok fun. The only real good thing is the water temperature. The pools are outdated and not totally clean. Change rooms are small and I haven't seem any attendant for cleaning....coming out...  more »

    the place has nothing otherworldly. It has two pools of water, a small one that has very hot water, and another larger with less hot water, you can choose what you want to. Facilities leave much to be desired, it smells much moisture, the pools are not very clean that say and I attribute it to the kind of "natural" water that is. Baths sweetie do need, they are very however and does not invite you to give the impression that it is a place very clean while it's clean. In Costa Rica there are better places, but to know it is not bad, but I do not recommend it for to go, but it is a matter of taste.

    I love hot springs and was excited to try this one while I visited the Yukon. I have to say it was fairly average compared to other springs i have visited. To me it seems run down, not enough lockers,...  more »

    Stayed there twice totalling 7 days. Amazing place to camp with an rv. Tom went above and beyond to accommodate us! Also his darwin bumper sticker sold me. 10/10 would stay again

    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

Where to stay in Whitehorse

Accommodations in Whitehorse are spread throughout the city center, easy to navigate on foot or by car. If views of the Yukon River are your top priority, you'll have to pay more to enjoy a prime riverside location in one of the hotels along Front Street. For something more budget-friendly, look for an inn or guesthouse a few streets back from the river. To immerse yourself in the wild nature of the Yukon, look outside the city itself to one of the many ranches and bed and breakfasts dotting the surrounding landscape.
