Colorado Hot Springs Guide

Colorado’s natural hot springs are a favorite for everybody. The soothing warm, almost too hot water saturated with natural minerals relaxes the body and rejuvenates the soul. If you have never visited one of the many naturally occurring hot springs in Colorado you need to add this to your bucket list. Or, perhaps you have a favorite one that keeps calling you back. In either case we recommend that you take a look at this hot springs guide and find the ones that appeal to you. A few are just as they have always been. Some are privately owned and offer amenities such as lodging and or spa services. While others have been incorporated into fitness centers. Explore the interactive map of Colorado Hot Springs and or read the short descriptions to find the next hot springs you want to go visit. With the advent of COVID, most hot springs now require reservations. Call ahead to learn about any new policies, ask about their amenities, and make a reservation if required.
