He was referring to literal fire and ice, but nonetheless his poem highlights the poetry of the relationship between fire and ice. And it’s a relationship that can be experienced and felt most thoroughly in a place like Liard River Hot Springs, especially in the dead of winter.

Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park was established in 1957. It now features a campground, as well as a “Hanging Gardens Trail”, on top of the second-largest hot spring in Canada.

The 1,082-acre park is located within a lush boreal forest, in Northern British Columbia, in the Liard River community near Fort Nelson.

The waters of the Alpha Pool hover between 42°C and 52°C, and it’s open year-round. (There was also a Beta Pool, but it was permanently closed due to bear activity.)

An approximately 980-ft boardwalk passes through the forest, leading to the pool. In addition, nearby facilities include a change-house and a composting toilet.

The surrounding forest is home to a diverse plant community, as well as several mammal and bird species. Hence, why it’s sometimes referred to as the “Tropical Valley.”

A seasonal day-use fee of $5 is collected for adults, with annual passes at $10. However, day-use fees are not collected during the off-season, between Oct. 1 and Apr. 30.

Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park is located on 75100-81198 Alaska Hwy, Northern Rockies B, BC.
