Campground and Hostel

Located beside the hot springs, this brand new hostel was opened in 2014. Our forested campground, behind the hostel, provides excellent northern lights viewing. The edge-of-the-wilderness location provides access to trails for walking, biking, snow-shoeing and cross-country skiing. All guests from the hostel and campground receive a 20% discount at the hot springs.

Transportation and Tours

Takhini Hot Pools is located 28km from downtown Whitehorse. There are a number of ways you can reach our hot springs. The easiest way is to rent a car and drive to our location. If you do not have a rental then we suggest taking advantage of these great local businesses: Black Bear Wilderness Adventures, Nature Tours of Yukon, and Who What Where Tours. These excellent companies will transport you right to our door or they will include our hot springs in their custom tours of Yukon attractions. Taxis are always a viable option as well.
