Takhini Hot Springs
The odorless (no sulfur) Takhini Hot Springs (867/456-8000, mid-May–mid-June daily noon–10 p.m., mid-June–mid-Sept. daily 8 a.m.–10 p.m.) bubble out of the ground at 36°C (96°F) north of Whitehorse. They have been developed and are as popular with locals as they are with visitors.
All-day access is adult $8, senior $6.50, child $5.75. The attached café has some of the best chicken soup north of Vancouver] The hot springs campground costs $16.50 for tents and $25–35 for RVs and trailers (this is a good place to spend the night, take an early dip, then hit the road to Dawson).
