New Pool Facility (Under construction)

This is considered the most exciting project at our hot springs.  A world-class facility designed to put the Yukon on the world map of great hot springs. Imagine authentic Japanese Onsen pools combined with the renowned Nordic Spas from northern Europe. Its never been done, but are determined to be the first such facility in the world….    Two saunas, two steam rooms, relax room, ample outdoor deck areas, outdoor showers, a “club mud”, and several authentic Japanese hot pools filled with unadulterated artesian-sourced thermal springs water. And of course, those challenging cold plunges and cold showers to get your circulation going in full form! It will be a cleansing experience like no other. And you will have the choice between a simple entry to the hot pools, or a full entry to hot pools, steam rooms, sauna and relax room. We will be open 365, from noon to 10pm with extended hours in the summer. Keep watching for more news!

Keep abreast of the construction of our new pool facility season by season, until the Grand Opening, slated for September, 2018.
