British Columbia’s hot springs are some of the most beautiful in Canada. Ranging from luxurious mineral baths to more humble and less known waters, our hot springs are not only beloved by locals but as well as travellers trying to escape from the big city.
One of the most famous hot springs in the area is the Ainsworth Hot Springs. Perched high up on a ridge, this is the perfect place to unwind and relax while enjoying the view of Kootenay Lake and the Purcell Mountains. The hot springs are both a day use attraction and an overnight destination. It consists of various pools located in a steam room-like horseshoe cave and an outdoor cold water plunge pool.
The main outdoor lounging pool looks like a regular swimming pool except it is filled with hot mineral water. The horseshoe cave’s hot mineral waters drop from the roof of the cave, dripping from stalagmites and stalactites, creating a waist deep pool and a natural spa.
