Dedicating time to self-care is essential, which is why a great idea after a hard week of work is to soak away your stress at a hot spring. Across the country, we are fortunate to have numerous hot springs where you can ease your aching muscles and enjoy epic views of the mountains or forest. So, why not treat yourself to one of these cheap hot springs in Canada this weekend?

Here in Canada, the winter months are frigid, and the fall can get pretty chilly as well in certain parts of the country. This makes the coming months the best time to head to a hot spring. It is an ideal way to warm up — just submerge yourself in a toasty pool of water and enjoy surreal views of the surrounding wilderness.

Some of the most spectacular hot springs that you'll want to include on your bucket list are Lussier Hot Springs, which is a hidden gem, and Liard River Hot Springs, which is one of the largest natural hot springs in Canada. Not only are both super affordable, but the surrounding landscapes are dreamy, too.
