Nahanni Headwater Hot Springs

62.803823, -128.905215


These isolated Springs, which are rarely visited, are the hottest in the Northwest Territories. At an elevation of around 1,300 feet, hot water oozes from steep Boulder slopes, well above the creek below. From the air, the Springs are plainly visible. Two primary springs are roughly 20 metres apart, while another source is a boat that is about 1200 feet away. The water is 64 degrees Celsius and devoid of dissolved minerals. It has a sulphurous odour.
