"HARRISON HOT SRPINGS" Province of British Columbia Off The Beaten Path Tip by yeah_baby


The greater Vancouver area has some excellent hot springs to explore, including the Spa of Canada, Harrison Hot Springs.

The centrepiece of a luxury hotel,
Harrison Hot Springs is a resort town with recreation and health at the forefront - soothe yourself in 8,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor natural mineral hot spring pools.

There's swimming, canoeing, and fishing on nearby Harrison Lake. In addition, there are sailboards and bikes to rent and hiking trails nearby. The resort operates all year round, but the peak season is from June through September.

Harrison Hot Springs is fronted by a long stretch of municipal beach, so perfect for building sand castles that an annual world championship sand sculpture competition is held here in September. The pools at the hotel are for guests only - but don't be dismayed: the public soaking pool, which has cooled hot-spring water pumped into it, is large and wonderfully warm. The public pool is one block east of the hotel.
