You Can Relax Away From Crowds At The Hidden Orvis Hot Springs In Colorado
Has anyone else noticed that many of our favorite Colorado attractions have become downright crowded and not nearly as quiet as they used to be? Sadly, this goes for our all-natural hot springs, too, leaving many feeling tenser than ever. Thankfully, there is still a quiet, relaxing, and crowd-free hot spring where Coloradans can retreat, which is the hidden Orvis Hot Springs:
Tucked away at the base of the San Juan Mountains in the town of Ridgway, the Orvis Hot Springs are tranquil and historical pools that were initially utilized by the Tabeguache band of the Utes, who considered the healing waters sacred.
Featuring seven naturally-occurring minerals with various health benefits, there is no better place to soak your cares away than Orvis, as the lithium-rich waters are proven to melt away stress and improve multiple ailments.
Whether you choose one of the indoor pools or one of the scenic outdoor ponds, you are sure to leave Orvis with fewer aches and pains and less stress!
In addition to the hot springs themselves, Orvis also offers clean and comfortable lodging options, plus beautiful, on-site campsites.
Please note: certain pools at the Orvis Hot Springs are clothing-optional.
All-day admission to the Orvis Hot Springs is $28 for adults and $15 for children ages 4 to 12.
Overnight guests receive complimentary access with their lodging.
