Comfortable Hotel near Radium Hot Springs' Heated Mineral Pools
The quiet mountain town of Radium Hot Springs owes a great deal to its natural mineral pools. The odorless hot springs—supplied by groundwater that's naturally heated by the earth's core—are the town's namesake and very reason for existence, and when they were tapped to build a commercial pool in 1914, lodges popped up to accommodate tourists. The springs even drew Winston Churchill to the area in 1929—he spent a week soaking in the 82-foot-long (25 m) pool. Today, Radium Hot Springs is a small town of about 1,400, tucked amid the Canadian Rockies. Prestige Inn Radium Hot Springs hotel is less than 2 miles (3 km) from the hot-springs mineral pool; two passes to the mineral springs are included with your stay.
At the hotel, slip into La Cabina Ristorante for an Italian dinner, or relax with a drink at Carrington Olde English Lounge. You can squeeze in a workout at the fitness center or indoor pool and hot tub. From your deluxe room, gaze out the window or into the bathroom mirror and see if you can spot Rocky Mountain b ighorn sheep, just one of the many big-game wildlife species that call this mountainous area home.
Radium Hot Springs, British Columbia: Gateway to the Canadian Rockies
Radium is a gateway into the southern entrance of Kootenay National Park, which is often less crowded than nearby Banff National Park, though no less spectacular. It's diverse, too— snow-capped peaks line the Continental Divide, and blooming cacti populate its semi-arid grasslands.
You can hike, mountain bike, horseback ride, swim, fish, and canoe within the park's borders. On the 1-mile (1.6 km) roundtrip Marble Canyon trail, you'll traverse a footbridge across a deep and narrow canyon, crisscrossing Tokumm Creek multiple times. Throughout, keep an eye out for wildlife such as mule and white-tailed deer, bears, and elk, all of which are frequently seen in the Columbia Valley.
