VEBO is now SPUR EXPERIENCES.

Colorado is famous for many things. Perhaps the most notable is skiing.  One of the best activities for partnering with skiing is a dip in the hot springs.  Year-round, there are hot springs offering relaxation and soothing tired, achy muscles. For couples, a long, luxurious soak together in a hot spring is a truly romantic experience that can’t be beat as a wedding present or honeymoon activity. Here are five of the very best hot springs in Colorado:

1
Iron Mountain Hot Springs

This facility offers one of the most amazing views you could hope for. Enjoy a relaxing warm soak surrounded by Rocky Mountain and forest views. Located in Glenwood Springs, Iron Mountain Hot Springs offers 16 mineral soaking pools and a freshwater pool with a jetted spa. It sits on the banks of the Colorado River, and provides easy access to other great activities like the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park.

Apres Ski - Check out Iron Mountain Hot Springs after a day on the slopes at Sunlight or any of the Aspen resorts.

2
Strawberry Park Hot Springs

The natural hot springs at Strawberry Park is one of Colorado’s many natural treasures, and one of the best hot springs in Colorado. The Strawberry Park Hot Springs features multiple therapeutic, thermal pools with temperatures from 101 - 105 degrees, so you can choose the right temperature for you. Located in 15 minutes from downtown Steamboat, Colorado, the rustic mountain setting will take your breath away as you float and enjoy the deliciously warm (or hot if you prefer) waters.

Apres Ski - This is in the heart of Steamboat Springs.

3
Pagosa Hot Springs

To many people, the Great Pagosa Hot Springs are more than just places to relax, they are truly life changing because of their medicinal qualities. For centuries, visitors have touted the miraculous curative powers of these ancient hot springs, and many have travelled from around the world to enjoy the healing, relaxation, and rejuvenation they offer. Nestled at the foot of the San Juan Mountains, couples can enjoy breathtaking mountain and river views as they soak in the hot spring.

Apres Ski - Wolf Creek is just 23 miles away from Pagosa Springs.  Wolf Creek regularly gets the "most snow in Colorado".

4
Conundrum Hot Springs

If being active is your thing and you’re very fit, then Conundrum Hot Springs is right up your alley. Why do you need to be fit to enjoy a hot spring? Well, it just so happens that the only way to get to this particular hot spring is via a 8.5 miles hike on rugged trail! It’s well worth it though.  The pools sit above 11,000 feet in the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness near Aspen and offer perhaps the most scenic views you will ever see. Even better, these hot springs are free and there are no crowds.

Apres Ski Season - This isn't a good trail until after ski season.  Save Conundrum Hot Springs for a challenging summer hike.  It is accessible from Crested Butte and Aspen.

5
Wiesbaden Hot Springs

For some European flair and feel, you can’t go wrong with the Wiesbaden Hot Springs in Ouray. Surrounded by the majestic San Juan Mountains the Wiesbaden hot springs offer unparalleled relaxation and rejuvenation.  Let all the weight float away as you enjoy a delicious soak in the continually flowing hot springs and vapor cave with its 108 degrees soaking pool. All springs are pure and natural, with no chemicals or additives. Enjoy!

A really cool feature of Colorado’s hot springs is that most of them feature accommodation or spas, and other activities like skiing or hiking can easily be tied to them. Go ahead, give yourself and your loved one a delightful time in Colorado.

Apres Ski - Telluride is pretty close (as the crow flies) but the road winds around the mountains for a beautiful 50 mile drive from Ouray.
