Takhini Hot Springs, Whitehorse

3.7
#3 of 10 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.

  • This place is amazing! You would think that you would die freezing out there but that doesn't happen at all. The people here have everything you need in case you are not prepared from flip-flops to towels. All the space from the showers to the hot springs is covered so you don't get any cold at all. And the water is so warming and cozy. They are renovating the place to make it better and have more space.
  • Wonderful outdoor hot springs ( but I hear they're switching to an indoor pool?) The restaurant there was one of the most eclectic and delicious I have ever experienced!
  • Very nice relaxing spot. Nothing better than a soak in a hot spring. This location has a cooler pool (great for the kids) and a hotter pool. Both side by side so you can watch the rug rats play while you soak it up. Definitely recommend. Enjoy
  • Going during the winter and experiencing the beautiful frozen hair is loads of fun. The combination of -20°C air and warm water is quite neat.
  • Amazing hot springs located outside the city of whitehorse approximately 25 minutes by the alaska highway, ideal to live a relaxing experience and live a local experience of the area, has bathrooms, area to store your accessories safely, account with a nice view outdoors and outside a view of the mountains and forests.
