Takhini Hot Springs, Whitehorse

3.6
#3 of 9 in Nature in Yukon
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.

  • Absolutely loved these hot pools. Very tidy and clean. They offer 2 x pools, one hot and one of medium temp. Was a great way to defrost.  more »
  • Conveniently located within about 15 minutes of Whitehorse, this is a good place to visit to relieve the stress and strain of travelling. Although perhaps a bit tired, the venue is decently maintained...  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
  • Don't let the green turn you off the water is quite clean.
