HOT SPRINGS COVE
For the few that can stand the intense heat, a natural shower underneath the waterfalls is simply awesome! Let your tensions evaporate with the steam at any time of the year. Rejuvenate your soul in these wonderfully scenic surroundings. Soaking in the rocky pools with a mountain rising overhead is a magical experience.
This soothing, natural wonder is open year-round and is accessible only by air or by sea (one-hour water taxi ride from Tofino). The hot springs are reached by an easy hike on a 2 km attractive wooden boardwalk trail from the dock. A selection of transport packages is offered out of Tofino, combining aerial sightseeing, camping, whale watching and kayaking with the magical experience of a mineral steam bath surrounded by old-growth rain forest.
Hot Springs Cove is a refreshing stop for kayakers paddling through the Flores and Vargas Islands. For those seeking a less strenuous visit, accommodation can be sought at a nearby lodge operated by the Hesquiat First Nations.
Guests of the lodge are permitted access to the two-mile, well-marked, wilderness trail to Tsamata Beach to spend time strolling through the uncut forest and exploring the undisturbed shoreline. There are huge ancient cedars, towering Douglas firs and spruces, some draped with Spanish moss. The air is thick and humid, and everything is lush, damp, green and growing.
Hot Springs Cove is a very popular attraction on the west coast so a visit during fall and winter will provide more privacy. The mineral water sustains numerous micro-organisms that could affect your eyes, ears and throat. Protective footwear is recommended in the rock pools - rubber-soled aquashoes are best. Bathing suits are not always worn.
Wilderness, backcountry or walk-in camping is allowed but no facilities are provided. Camping is not permitted on the peninsula portion of the park where the hot springs are located. Wilderness camping is permitted in the remainder of the park. A private campground, operated by the Hesquiat First Nation, is located just north of the government dock.
Over the winter months, storm watching is popular. You will find competitive rates on accommodation during these quieter months. We recommend you reserve accommodations well in advance of Tofino's busy summer months. Planning ahead will ensure you find the cabin, condo, vacation rental or resort suitable to your needs. Tofino offers a variety of outdoor activities for visitors. Whale watching, hiking, surfing, hot springs excursions and beach combing are just a few popular activities at Tofino's doorstep.
