Hot Springs Circle Route

BC's biggest concentration of natural hot springs is in the Kootenay Rockies region and the easiest way to find them is to follow the signs for the Hot Springs Circle Route. This five to seven day, 852 kilometer (529 mile) route, one of nine suggested self-drive touring routes posted around the province, takes in seven hot springs and passes through some of  BC's most stunning lake and mountain scenery.

Hot Springs Cove

Spend a serene day at Hot Springs Cove. These rustic geothermal springs, about 80 minutes by sea from Tofino in Maquinna Marine Provincial Park, are accessible year-round by boat or floatplane. Several water taxis and tour operators offer trips to the park. After gliding past forested islands, spotting marine mammals and birdlife on the way, you stroll along a forested boardwalk to the springs. Here, a steaming waterfall cascades into a series of pools carved into the shoreline and cooled by ocean swells, making it an idyllic setting for a relaxing soak.

Unwind in the spectacular natural setting of Liard Hot Springs, an essential stop when travelling the Alaska Highway.

Nakusp Hot Springs

The small town of Nakusp, on Upper Arrow Lake, boasts three hot springs. At Nakusp Hot Springs two hot springs-fed pools are set in an amphitheatre-like structure against a backdrop of mountains. At Halcyon Hot Springs Village & Spa, a series of hot, warm and cold pools overlook the lake; a restaurant, a spa and cabins are here too. For something more rustic, head for Halfway Hot Springs where wooden soaking buckets are fed by a hose from the spring.

One of the top soaking spots in BC is Radium Hot Springs in Kootenay National Park. Two open-air mineral pools, including Canada's largest hot springs-fed pool, lie near the sheer walls of Sinclair Canyon, where Bighorn sheep are frequently seen. In winter, skiers and boarders can soothe sore muscles in the warmest pool (37-40°C/99-104°F).
