HEAD FOR A SOAK IN MOUNTAIN HOT SPRINGS
Soak up the views as you soak in the mountain-backed mineral-rich pools at one of BC’s Kootenay Rockies hot springs (all with enhanced safety protocols in place). Visit the Fairmont Hot Springs Resort for a rejuvenating getaway; reserved exclusively for guest access, these natural springs are spectacular in fall as snow starts to blanket distant peaks. Stay in a cabin, cottage, loft, or lodge, or choose a suite to relax in a soaker tub and warm up in front of a gas fireplace. There are four in-resort eateries and a cafe to satisfy your appetite, stocked with BC wines and craft beer from the area.
The village of Radium Hot Springs, about 25 minutes north, is a prime location for a relaxing escape. Stay and spa at the newly renovated Prestige Radium Hot Springs Resort, then head for a soak in the natural pools. While in town, you might see the area’s beloved bighorn sheep out for a graze (or a head-butt) with their brethren. Be sure to visit the Radium Brewing for a pint.
