Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lake

The Amazing Nakusp Hot Springs



The Nakusp Hot Springs are nestled in the Kuskanax Valley in the foothills of the Selkirk Mountains and are one of BC’s best kept secrets! When your daily adventures are complete, you can relax and refresh in the naturally cleanest Hot Springs anywhere, and enjoy a stay at the comfortable, clean, yet rustic Cedar Chalets. In the summer you also have the choice of staying in the lovely Campground beside the Kuskanax Creek.


During spring, summer, and fall, you can enjoy hiking and biking. There are short nature hikes to the  brand new Kuskanax Footbridge and the historic original Hot Springs site. For the more adventurous, there are longer day hikes to beautiful Kimbol Lake and other scenic trails all starting at the Hotsprings site. Fishing, kayaking, and canoeing opportunities abound in the Kuskanax River and the nearby Arrow Lakes.



In the late fall and winter there are beautiful snowy landscapes in a moderate climate that encourage many winter sports and activities. There is snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and tobogganing on the trails; snowmobiling, heli and cat-skiing are also available nearby. Enjoy your stay.

    Good morning, Peter,
    So, at least literally, you can be “in hot waters”. Hopefully never figuratively. 😀
    Talking of Arrow Lakes: I was utterly surprised lately to find wines from the Arrow Lakes region at a liqour store in neighbouring Kerrville. They were whites, a semi-dry Riesling [from the Dr. Konstantin Frank winery] and a dry Riesling [from the Salmon Run estates]. I didn’t buy either, though, since I’m not into Rieslings any more.
    Have a great day,

      Good morning, Pit! Thank you for the praise of the dry Riesling, which you thought was coming from the Arrow Lakes. But these Lakes are located in British Columbia, Canada and are not known to produce good wines. In the neighouring Okanagan valley we have some world famous wineries.
      Have a great day and best wishes!

        Your error brought some new information: I learned about the Finger-Lakes region and looked up a few wineries. And you have a better idea where the Arrow Lakes are located. Have a great day, Pit!

      I am in the same category as you and would prefer hiking on a trail for the elderly. Haha! When our boys were in their teens, I would go mountain climbing with them.
      Heli skiing has been around for quite some time. They fly you with a helicopter into a normally inaccessible mountain region from which you do your downhill skiing. Cat-skiing is the latest craze. Huge machines on tracks take you into a mountain wilderness area and is similar to heli skiing. Have a great day!

        There are relatively few accidents from this kind of sport. Snowmobilers have the most fatal accidents as they carelessly drive into avalanche territory in spite of all the warnings. It must be a latent death wish, Brigit.

    We don’t have hot springs here in Jaipur. We don’t have such extreme cold climate as well. The temperature soars to 45-46 C Which provides natural steam and Sauna experience.

      GP, too many people coming from the Rocky Mountains stay on the Trans Canada Highway on their way to the coast and miss the scenic drive which includes two free ferry rides into our beautiful area. I am not worried yet about a potential tourist invasion. Best wishes! Peter
