Ainsworth Hot Springs
British Columbia, Canada
|The Hot Springs feature a unique horseshoe cave, where the Hot Water first comes in. It comes into our systems at about 117 F degrees and we have to cool it to average 42 C, 108 F before it enters our caves. The mineral waters fall from the caves roof and forms into a pool about waist deep, providing a natural steam bath. Stalagmites and Stalactites form everywhere. The main lounging pool temperatures average about 35 C / 96 F. Gallons of Hot Mineral Water flows through our pools, changing the water naturally about 6 times a day. For the brave we also offer a streamfed cold plunge which temperature varies with the seasons.
For a first hand view of the horseshoe cave, check out our virtual tour.

Where Does The Water Come From?
The springs originate in the Cody Caves area, which is directly above and to the west of Ainsworth Hot Springs. The water works its way down through porous rock to a depth of 1-1/2 to 2 kilometers. The water picks up temperatures at a rate of 40 C° per km down until it strikes what is known as the lakeshore fault.
This fault is an impervious layer of rock lying at an angle of 45 to 50 degrees from Ainsworth Hot Springs to a point directly below the Cody Caves. Hydraulic pressure forces the water up along the fault where it emerges at Ainsworth Hot Springs - Voila - Hot Water.
