The hot springs were first visited by the Ktunaxa First Nations peoples who experienced the waters as a welcome respite after a long day of hunting, fishing, and gathering roots and berries in what is now known as the Kootenay region. The Ktunaxa First Nations peoples embraced the nupika wu’u, or hot mineral waters, for their healing and rejuvenating powers and Ainsworth Hot Springs has been welcoming guests since the 1930s.
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.
For over a century hot springs enthusiasts have sought out the Nakusp Hot Springs to soak away stress, invigorate energy and re- store inner balance while enjoying the healing mineral water. The Nakusp Hot Springs has a warm welcome for those who have yet to experience this rare gem, and a warm spot in the hearts of those who have been here before.
Relax in our spacious creekside RV and tenting campground, or one of the comfy Cedar Chalets, just steps away from the hot spring pools. Be sure to make your reservations early as it’s a hot spot for camping.

Welcome To The Valhalla Inn
Valhalla, according to Norse mythology was a magnificent palace, roofed with shields wherein dwelled the bravest of slain Norse warriors. There, under the leadership of the god, Odin, they lived a happy life waiting for the day when they would be rallied to march out and do battle against the giants. To reach Valhalla was the greatest honour a Norse warrior could attain. Valkyries, maidens who served Odin, travelled to the battlefields to choose the slain who were worthy of a place in Valhalla.
