I wish I was sinking into the pools at Radium Hot Springs right now.
This past weekend, my family and I travelled to Radium Hot Springs to enjoy a 2-night stay at Bighorn Meadows, some ice fishing with Reel Axe Adventures, skiing at Panorama Mountain Resort and spending some much needed relaxation time in the neighbouring hot springs.
There was something special about fishing all day on a frozen lake and then driving out to Radium Hot Springs for a warm (or even hot) dip in the developed natural hot springs. Walking out into the cold weather and feeling the warm sensation of the water when it first hits your feet is a delicious experience.
We ended up visiting Radium Hot Springs twice, thoroughly enjoying the deep relaxation caused by hot soothing water and surrounding mountain scenery. As I sat in the warm waters, I’d look to my right and see a frozen waterfall backlit by bright colours and when I looked to my left I’d see the cliff of a mountain with trees standing tall and covered in hoarfrost. It was magical.
One night we stayed in the hot springs for two full hours, only leaving because our skin was getting very wrinkled.
There are plenty of things to do in the town of Radium Hot Springs including nearby skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, snowshoeing, golfing, white water rafting and much more. After partaking in the suite of adventures in the area, there’s nothing better than swinging by the hot springs to sooth those tired muscles.
As I sit here typing away, I simply cannot wait to be surrounded again by the mystical steam of Radium Hot Springs as I soak in the hot waters.
