Canada's Largest Hot Spring Will Make You Feel Like You're In Iceland's Famous Blue Lagoon
This luxury experience is for the most frugal of travellers.
Few things are more amazing than discovering hidden hot springs around the province. Unfortunately, sometimes out in nature the hot springs can get a little cramped. Rather than crouching inside a tiny rocky pool of warm water this fall, why not treat yourself to a dip in Canada's largest hot spring pool? These massive yet cheap B.C. hot springs have to be on your radar this fall.
Fairmont Hot Springs is the best place in the province to soak in luxury for a fraction of the cost you'd expect. Rather than being packed shoulder to shoulder in a tiny hot spring, you can swim, paddle, walk and even zip line around these massive pools. It's the largest of their kind in Canada and it's worth a visit! Anyone going on a B.C. or Alberta road trip this fall should add this place to their bucket list.
Surrounded by the Rockies, the hot springs are like an oasis of warmth and relaxation. This place is B.C.'s own version of Iceland's famous hot spring only it's a lot cheaper. It's so fun to come here in the fall and winter because the cold air makes the water steam and swirl just like the Blue Lagoon in Iceland.
These crystal clear hot springs have been around for over 60 years! This year, they finally got a little TLC, so they have a whole new look. The redesign of the pool included rock features that reflect the natural mountain landscape around the hot springs. Plus, there's now a zipline over the lap pool and two new diving boards!
The pools are open year-round from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day. Imagine watching the sun come up on a chilly fall morning from the warmth of the pools! This place makes a great treat yourself vacation spot and it's pretty romantic, too.
