Halcyon Hot Springs

This is a lovely commercial hot spring pool located a short drive north of Nakusp, BC. There are several pools of varying temperatures. As you can see from the photos taken from above the pools, the small pool is the cold plunge, the middle pool is the hottest, and the larger pool is medium temperature. The colour of the water in these pools demonstrates the level of filtering of the water from the hot spring source–the clear water indicates more filtration and a colder temperature, the yellowish water indicates less filtration (more mineral content) and a hotter temperature. There is also a lower deck with a larger, seasonal pool and kids play area.

The only criticism I have about this location is that the restaurant overlooks the hot pool area. This is nice for folks in the restaurant, but creates some noise for the those relaxing in the hot pools.
