Takhini Hot Springs, Whitehorse

#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.

  • If you like hot springs and will visit Whitehorse in the cold, spending horas6nessa thermal pool is super relaxing and more than pleasant. You can go from the locker room to the pool by a covered area, so I almost didn't get cold.

  • We were very lucky as we arrived at the springs when there were not many people around. This allowed us move between the two pools at our leisure. Couldn't recommend a better way to spend an afternoon...  more »
  • The warm spring water is hot, the environment is beautiful and empty, the trees and snow can be seen nearby, and the zero is immersed in the warm spring feeling straight. The design is simple, but clean. Our day (weekdays) has a discount of just 8 dollars, very well worth the experience. The traffic is convenient, we don't have a car but there is a shuttle bus in the city centre that can be arranged, and there is an animal park on the side that can be seen together. The location of the spring is only 30 minutes away from the city center, but it has long been out of town light, and if it is in good weather, it can be seen clearly. We came in the morning, and we came in, and there was so little flow of people that we could enjoy the warm spring.

  • 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.

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.
