Owner description: Takhini Hot Springs offers a range of recreational activities in every season of the year. You can soak, swim, and relax in the natural mineral waters of two connected hot pools. The water comes into the pool at 46 degrees Celsius and cools down to 42 degrees Celsius. The cooler side is a comfortable 37 degrees Celsius. We also host the Hair Freezing Contest annually. If you want to stay for the night, there is a wilderness style campground and hostel (yukoncampground,com). Tenting sites, RV sites, and 20 hostel beds. They also have 2 escape rooms (yukonescapegames,com). These are separate businesses from Takhini Hot Springs. Takhini Hot Springs is just 28 kilometers 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! Please visit our website for all the information regarding hours, rates, and policies.

We visited in late June, and although it was relaxing and nice and warm, the pools could be in better repair. The pools are old and could use repainting. The water is not clear either. Grass was not maintained around the property making it look untidy.

We ate a picnic lunch before going in. Had to remove shoes and use there flip flops. They have lockers and lend locks at no charge.
There are really 2 pools here. The one we entered is cooler. We crossed into the other pool which was really hot. We were able to stay in that one about 5 min.
The cooler pool was more relaxing. Around the pool is a bench so you can sit in the water and enjoy the heat. Around the outside the of the pools are chairs to relax in.
You can leave and return later in the day since they are open until 11 PM. With the long daylight this is quite possible.
Worth the stop.

My wife and I stayed at the hostel at Takhini for a total of 6 nights on our way to Dawson and also on our return. The hostel is modern and well maintained. There are a variety of pots, pans, dishes,glasses and cutlery for any cooking activities that you may wish to undertake. The hostel is VERY clean and the beds are very comfortable with excellent washrooms and showers. The staff and owners are wonderful and very hospitable as well as being helpful with any of your needs.

The place is outside Whitehorse, takes about 30 to 40 minutes to get there. Wasn't too busy, and unfortunately the water wasn't very hot and that was a down side.

Only 30 minutes outside Whitehorse, the place is well kept...bring sandals....pool is made of concrete and is clean, divided in two sections for which one is warmer than the other.

Wish the fence was a bit lower so we could enjoy the views.

Family friendly and for all ages
