There's nothing in the world like Iceland's Blue Lagoon, but these hot springs in Canada might be as close as you can get without actually leaving the country.

Luckily for those that love to soak, Canada has tons of beautiful hot springs and geothermal pools, both natural and man-made, in national parks and dreamy resorts.

A massive lagoon modelled after the Icelandic Blue Lagoon is even set to be built in Quebec and will be the largest of its kind in the world!

GeoLAGON in Quebec will be an open-air lagoon where you can soak under the sky. But, if you can't quite wait until 2023 (when construction is set to begin), there are tons of hot springs across the country that offer a similar vibe and will help you relax and unwind.

Here are eight hot springs in Canada with steamy, turquoise water that will definitely give you all of the Blue Lagoon vibes.
