On July 3, 4, & 5, 2020 bring the whole family out for the events and activities during the Whatshan Jam, a Family & Friends Festival. In the winter bring your snowshoes and skis and trek through our over 200 acres of wilderness and beyond and then warm everyone up with some hot chocolate in one of our modern cabins.
Freedom Quest is one of the organizations that our charitable organization sponsors. Based in Castlegar, Freedom Quest seeks to support and strengthen youth in difficulty at home and in the community. Freedom Quest runs various youth programs which include activities at Whatshan.

Open 365 days a year, Halcyon is home to some of the most restorative hot spring waters you will find in North America. General Frederick Burnham, who owned the “Halcyon Sanitarium” until 1955 believed these waters should be shared with the world. We hold the same philosophy, along with a dream to create a village where everyone is welcome to relax and enjoy the healing waters of Halcyon Hot Springs, British Columbia.
