Nakusp Hot Springs
Tucked away in the Selkirk Mountains, the Nakusp Hot Springs are the pride of the village and known as the hidden gem of the Kootenays. It is wholly owned and operated by the village. The circular shaped hot springs pool is housed in an ampitheatre-like structure above Kuskanax Creek, and is divided into two sections. The large part is filled with warm water, and the smaller part with hotter water.
The hot springs are located 12 kms up a paved and well maintained mountain road. In earlier times there was only a path that was used by pack-horses escorting paddlewheel passengers who came to sample the deliciously warm waters. Soak your bones in the gorgeous mountain setting and get away from it all!
After enjoying the soothing waters, go hiking and mountain biking, or camp at the resort’s campground in the serene setting of a grove of old growth cedars and hemlocks on Kuskanax Creek.
