If you’re a fan of natural hot springs, you’ve no doubt heard of the village of Nakusp. And if you haven’t, all the more reason to plan a road trip and check it out for yourself, because as far as small towns in BC go, Nakusp really has it all.
Situated in the Selkirk Mountains, the town of Nakusp is truly a hidden gem, complete with stunning lakes, forests, and mineral-rich hot springs to explore. What’s more, the hot springs are known as the ‘cleanest and the clearest’ in the province, according to the Village of Nakusp, so you know you’re getting the ultimate experience.
Visitors can unwind at a number of private hot springs or check out several public pools and spas, as well as spend the day at the nearby Arrow Lakes.
And if you prefer to take it all in from the town’s Waterfront Walkway, you’ll be greeted by stunning views of the lakes, beaches, surrounding mountain ranges, and downtown shops.

Outdoor enthusiasts can also take advantage of the town’s extensive network of hiking trails, mountain bike trails, and horseback riding opportunities. And come wintertime, Nakusp transforms into the ultimate destination for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.
And here’s a fun fact for you: The village of Nakusp has long been passionate about hockey, according to the town’s website. So much so, in fact, that the Arrow Lakes Fruit Fair Association used part of the old Fair Building as an arena in the winter, which has since evolved into the Nakusp and District Sports Complex.
So there you have it, BC! If you’re looking for some quality R&R this long weekend, you know where to find it.
