Explore the Nearly Endless Things to Do in Harrison Hot Springs

Covering 200 square kilometres, the glacier-fed Harrison Lake is nestled into a breathtakingly beautiful stretch of the southern Coast Mountains. It’s shore at Harrison Hot Springs is one of the most popular and picturesque beaches in the province and a favourite spot for leisurely and active vacationers alike.

The hotel is in the heart of Harrison Hot Springs, just steps from the beach, public pool, and village promenade. We offer underground secure pay parking or complimentary ground level parking, but you certainly won't need a car to explore the village as all of the best things to do are within easy walking distance. You’ll find a variety of shops and galleries, with plenty of places to stop for a coffee, an ice cream, local brew, or entire meal.

Active pursuits right in town are mostly centred around beach and water, with plenty of options for fishing, boating, tubing, and paddling. And of course, there is the Harrison Lake Water Park for even more thrills. Those looking for terrestrial activities can find a range of easy to challenging walking, hiking, and biking.

Even though you'll feel like you're deep in the mountains while at the hotel, a plethora of rivers, rural towns, and fertile farm country is less than an hour's drive away. Explore local museums, shops, country fairs, and art festivals, many of which come alive in the fall. And when winter arrives, there's still skiing and boarding at the Sasquatch Mountain Resort to enjoy, less than an hour away.
