On a crisp day, nothing feels better than taking a nice hot bath. But, have you ever taken a dip in a natural hot spring? These public swimming spots are amazing and there are literally tons all around B.C. They are the perfect place to warm up with a friend or a significant other and recharge after a hectic workweek. Part of our job here at Narcity is to be your acting tour guide so we came up with 6 natural hot springs in B.C. that you need to try. 

B.C. in the fall is literally breathtaking. While the leaves are changing, temperatures are also dropping. Don’t let this scare you, though. B.C. winters are nothing compared to the Snowtember storm Alberta got recently. 

Working five days a week can be super stressful. From healing sore joints to easing the mind, these natural bodies of water have a powerful way of relaxing you and pulling you back into your centre.

These hot spring baths are perfect and can be surrounded by anything from lush foliage to waterfalls and wildlife. Whether you are looking for a weekend getaway or a quick day trip to relax, these natural hot spring are the best.
