What could be a better reward after a journey through nature than a soak in warm, soothing water? Even better, water that’s been naturally heated by molten rock? If you’re looking for such a luxury, then head to one of Canada’s many hot springs; the west is filled with bodies of water that have been heated by the Earth’s crust. And because hot springs can contain a range of minerals, including sulfate, calcium, magnesium, bicarbonate, and sodium, many people seek them out for more than just warmth—they can also have therapeutic benefits. Below we outline how to find a few of the country’s most inviting hot springs, so you can design your next winter adventure accordingly.
