Regional Tourism Magazine, for the southeastern area known as the West Kootenays in British Columbia, Canada.
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.
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.
