Kootenay Rockies Hot Springs: Geological Phenomenon in British Columbia

Kootenay Rockies Hot Springs

With it mountains, rainforests, and vast, remote, and scenic landscape, British Columbia was already at the top of my favorite places in the world and then in recent times I was introduced to Kootenay Rockies Hot Springs. Incredibly, there is an added reason to love B.C. The combination of the hot springs’ mineral contents, warm waters, and beautiful settings sure do tend to heal body, mind and soul.

Kootenay Rockies Hot Springs allows visitors to soak in natural springs in caves, streams, canyons, and some has backdrop of old-growth forests and soaring mountain peaks.

Getting to the Kootenay Rockies Hot Springs can be an adventure in itself. While some of these natural spas are found at hotel resorts or in national parks other health farms are tucked away in areas that are off-the-beaten paths and are only reachable by boat, horseback, hiking, or float plane. Kootenay Rockies Hot Springs in remote regions are noted to contain significantly high mineral contents and depict copious geothermal features.

Persons who visit these Kootenay Rockies Hot Springs do so to indulge their therapeutic properties, either at a smart hotel or at a rustic wilderness lodge. I have in fact visited Kootenay Rockies Hot Springs at both the remote locations, hidden away in the woods, and also at the pampered hotel. Conclusion: a phenomena of nature, hot spring is amazing everywhere. However, for me, I prefer seclusion, 100% nature (in this case less man-made/added features) and so I tend to prefer those remote Kootenay Rockies Hot Springs. It is harder to get to the remoter hot springs and thus these areas are less crowded, lesser developed and rugged and their mineral and geological features headier.
