Takhini Hot Springs

The natural mineral waters of Takhini Hot Springs flow from deep within the earth. They are uniquely odourless, no sulphur smell to detract from your enjoyment. The main minerals are calcium, magnesium and iron. The iron gives the water a red or brown hue.
There are two connected pools. The water flows naturally into the pool at 385 litres per minute at 42°C (108°F). It gradually cools to about 37°C at the outflow. The pool is drained and disinfected once every 24 hours in the summer. The pool is drained 5-7 times a week in the winter.

The water is comfortable for all ages, in all seasons. The maximum depth of the hotter pool is 1.2 metres (4 feet) while the other pool is 2 metres (6.5 feet) at the centre. Please bring clean indoor footwear such as flip flops, or crocs to wear in the change rooms and pool side. Bare feet are not allowed for health and safety reasons. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult in the swimming pool.
Sitting in the hot water relaxing is made even more enjoyable by the wonderful view of the mountains. Whether the mountains are draped with snow, ablaze with autumn colour, bursting with spring greens or shadowed with clouds and sunshine, they provide a beautiful focus for thoughtful appreciation.

The hot Springs are open year round! In low season (October 1st to April 30th) the hot springs are open from 12pm to 10pm. In high season (May 1st to September 30th) the hot springs are open from 10am to 10pm (in May) and 8am to 11pm (in June). Every winter, weather permitting, there is the International Hair Freezing Contest in which people from around the world enter the hot springs, wet their hair, and in the cold temperatures of winter, freeze their hair. Pictures are taken of all contestants frozen hairdos and are submitted to the business for consideration in the contest.

Located only one minute of walk away is the Hot Springs Campground and Hostel. The campground features over 60 wilderness sites, surrounded by a large forest. Electric sites are available as well as a central water station and dump station. Wifi is provided in the entire campground. The hostel is a brand new building from 2015 and has 20 beds, a full kitchen, living room, large sunroom, a big deck with a BBQ, wifi, and satelite TV. The campground and hostel property also host Yukon Escape Games, the North's only Escape Rooms!
