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 340 litres per minute at 40°C
gradually cools to about 35°C at the outflow. The pool
is drained and disinfected once every 24 hours in the summer. The pool is drained 3 to 4 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)
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.
