If you want to stay for the night, there is a separate wooded campground and easily accessible RV sites nearby (yukoncampgroun,com).You can see the rugged beauty of the land from a network of walking/x-country ski trails. Takhini Hot Springs is just 30 kilometres (18 miles) north of Whitehorse, about a 25-minute drive from downtown Whitehorse. Please bring your indoor footwear such as flip flops or crocs to wear in the change rooms. Please be advised that there are no kids after dark allowed in the pool! We hope you visit us!

“Nice, warm and relaxing”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Water is perfect temperature for a nice soak. Two pools relatively close in temperature. Nice part is there is no door coming from the waters that most other hot springs typically have.

“So glad we went”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

My wife and I went on a Monday morning and had the whole place to ourselves.
The pools hadn’t finished filling yet from the nightly draining, but even at half full, they were super relaxing. Yes the pools are a bit dated looking, but it’s clean, it’s fun, it’s relaxing and in the cool Whitehorse morning, it’s awesome. Really glad we went.

There are 2 other attractions on Hotsprings road, so it’s worth the short drive from Whitehorse. Check out Bean North and the Wildlife preserve.

“A lovely wind down place...”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Takhini Hot springs is a lovely spot for some tranquility and relaxation. The price is average and charging for flip flops is a bit over the top and unnecessary. Easily, this could be offered as a courtesy to guests. The change rooms were clean and the pools - great! The pools are drained each night and refilled over night! The cafe beside the hot springs offers delicious spelt pita bread sandwiches!

“Very relaxing couple of hours !!”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

I went here at 4pm and it wasn't that busy, good value I though at 12 bucks fior entry and flip flops as I forgot mine and you need them
Changing rooms and showers are ok, clean but basic but have everything you need.
Two pools one hot at 42 degrees the other was 37, I spent a very relaxing couple if hours going between the two, sun was out, views, what more can you want.
There is a cafe and plenty of chairs if you want them.
Pools were clean.
Would recommend a visit
