We have no shortage of amazing spas, but for a real one-of-a-kind experience, you'll want to visit this surreal hot spring cave in B.C. When you enter this B.C cavern, you'll feel like you're on another planet. Here you can soak away your troubles in a 150-foot horseshoe grotto.
Next to the majestic Kootenay Mountain range, you'll find Ainsworth Hot Springs. The main attraction here is their hot spring in a cave, which is unlike anything you've seen before.
Inside the long and narrow tunnel, you won't believe your eyes. Above you, in the softly lit area, there will be nothing but rocky walls.
But sections of the stones are illuminated, giving the space an unearthly feel.
Part of the fun is exploring the incredible environment with your friends. It isn't challenging to do, as the water is only waist-deep, so you don't need to swim.
Once you find your favourite spot, you can relax in the heavenly mineral-rich water. It is kept at a toasty 42 C, well above the 35 C of the main pool nearby.
Another perk of the unique location is that you are protected from bad weather. If it is rainy or windy, you don't need to worry about it, as you have a roof over your head.
A visit to this spa is very affordable too. It is only $14 per person.
Included in this price, you'll also get complimentary use of a storage locker. You'll also be able to enjoy the main pool overlooking Kootenay Lake and the refreshing cold plunge.
It is also possible to turn your visit into a weekend getaway. The Ainsworth Hot Springs Resort has rooms available from $179.00 a night and includes two passes to the spa.
Are you ready to visit? It's open daily from 10:00 a.m to 9:30 p.m.
