McArthur Hot Springs

This pair of Springs is located in the MacArthur wildlife reserve,  east of the Klondike Highway.  scenery of mountains and meadows is magnificent.

MacArthur Hot Springs are on the South Branch of the suitably called Hot Spring Creek, some 60 kilometres south of Mayo and 37 kilometres east of Highway 2. A 30-minute helicopter ride from Male, the closest town, is the customary approach. Despite the high cost of the excursion, this collection of Springs is frequently visited by groups in helicopters during the summer.


There are no roads in the vicinity. They can, however, be accessible by flying to Little Kalzas Lake, about 10 kilometres south of the springs. After that, travel northwest along the valley for about 8 kilometres before heading north toward Hot Spring Creek. To get to the springs, follow Hot Spring Creek upstream. It will be a challenging hike of roughly 20 kilometres of bushwhacking.

On the Left Bank of the creek, the mainspring is located in a clearing of 90 feet by 150 feet in the heart of a dense forest. This area contains three major springs as well as a number of events. Several shallow bathing ponds with sharp, Stoney bottoms have been constructed out of rocks, each large enough to accommodate a few individuals. Temperatures as high as 57 degrees Celsius have been reported. There is little to no tufa in the area, and it is clear with a minor sulphur odour.

There is a few Cold Springs in an area about a half a kilometre Upstream from the hot springs.
