Harrison Hot Springs: This water gets as hot as 62C

The healing waters of Harrison Hot Springs have been revered for thousands of years

Harrison Hot Spring’s healing waters were used for thousands of years by the local Sts’ailes First Nations before being found by European settlers on their way to the gold rush in 1858.

The two hot springs in the area are called Potash and Sulphur, whose highest temperature is a whopping 62C or 145F. The water is cooled and pumped to two locations.

The hot springs can be enjoyed year-round by visiting the indoor public pool or by staying at the Hot Springs Resort.

Although Harrison Hot Springs and its resort have imposed strict travel restrictions during the COVID-19 crisis, check the village’s official website and tourism page when planning future trips to get current conditions.
