About The Book & Where To Get It

After a good run Hot Springs of Western Canada 3rd edition is now out of print (AKA “sold out”). Glenn and David are working on a 4th edition, but with other projects and full-time jobs it’s still several years away.

We’d like to thank everyone who picked up or expressed interest in the previous editions, and welcome any beta, updates, or comments you might have that can help us make the 4th edition even better. Email us at .

The third edition is the complete guide to every hot spring in Canada, as well as some springs in Washington and Alaska.  Hot springs in western Canada range from commercial resorts with all the amenities to wild pools well off the beaten track.  Whether you prefer an established resort, secluded pools off backroads, a quiet soak after a long hike or paddle, or just the pursuit of elusive hot water, this book has all the information you need to make your trip a success.  It includes detailed directions and GPS coordinates, descriptions of the pools, historical notes, and other highlights.
