Nestled between scenic peaks, Halycon Hot Springs have several healing pools and springs to enjoy. Their natural mineral swimming pool is the perfect place to enjoy a cold winter night under the stars or to just cool down after soaking in one of the hot pools. Speaking of hot springs, there are three variations of pools you can try depending on how brave you are. Their hottest pool is roughly 107 degrees Fahrenheit and is probably the most popular of all three. Their warm pool which is located on the upper deck is roughly 95 degrees Fahrenheit and includes relaxing jets. The third option is considered their cold hot springs pool which comes in at 85 degrees Fahrenheit. We recommend trying all three as each one gives great views of British Columbia and all offer relaxation and rejuvenation.
