Ouray Hot Springs Pool
After a few drinks, there’s no better way to finish off your day than unwinding in a hot spring, bubbling up extra hot and steamy from under the Rocky Mountains. The most well-known spot in Ouray is the Ouray Hot Springs Pool, a 750,000 gallon sulfur-free (stink-free) pool. It’s actually more than one pool – there’s a pool for kids, one for swimming laps, and some for just soaking. Different pools also offer different temperatures, with the hottest ones reaching up to 106 degrees. But as the most popular spot in town, the Ouray Hot Springs Pool can get a little crowded. So if you’re seeking a more laidback, intimate experience, check out one of these two local hot (literally) spots. The Wiesbaden Hot Springs Spa offers two small hot springs pools – and one is underground, creating a vapor cave (think Mother Earth’s all-natural sauna). Wiesbaden prides itself on its all-natural, untreated water that’s packed with rejuvenating therapeutic benefits to release stress and ease aches and pains. Or if you’re more of a free spirit, check out the clothing optional Orvis Hot Springs. Sink into the hot waters and soak up the majestic snowy mountains surrounding you – unmatched relaxation, with or without clothes. This winter stay stateside and plan a trip to Ouray. It’s low-key but packed with adventure – a perfect winter playground for any outdoor enthusiast. Learn more about this hidden gem of Colorado at the official website for Ouray, Colorado.
