TAKHINI ONSEN HOT POOLS REDEVELOPMENT (under construction)
The 10,000+ year old hot springs are the very foundation of the Yukon Hot Springs eco resort and integral to its existence. The Hot Pools redevelopment plan recognizes the dramatic site features. Maximizing solar orientation, enhancing views, and the rehabilitation of the spring source, and reclamation of the tufa fields, excessive roadways and parking are priority items. The new hot pools and and associated guest services green building centre provides visitors with a more nature based experience.

For millennia, people worldwide have used hot springs for their restorative, natural healing and mystical powers. Yukon's Takhini Hot Springs therapeutic value was long recognized by local First Nations. Over the last century, the warm waters have soothed many Yukoners. In recent years, the Yukon Hot Springs Resort (formerly Takhini Hot Springs Resort) has become a popular venue for international and local visitors alike—to bask in the hot pools, and view the awe-inspiring Northern Lights in winter or experience the magic of the Midnight Sun during the summer months.

Yukon Hot Springs Resort's new/y developed Hot Pools and Eclipse Nordic Hot Springs Guest Centre recognizes (in both design and services) that human health is interconnected with environmental health. The Pools and guest services  building have been sited to rehabilitate the historical tufa run-off area and take advantage of views to the associated Takhini Pond, and local mountains.

HOT SPRINGS SOURCE REHABILITATION (completed)
The hot springs source has been rehabilitated and the area protected.  An enclosed gazebo that allows for public viewing has been placed over the source pool.
