HOTTEST NATURAL SPRINGS
GET YOUR BUBBLY ON AT MONTANA'S HOTTEST NATURAL SPRINGS
When visiting Montana, it can be easy to jam-pack your trip with non-stop adventure. Hiking through Glacier! Drinking your way along the Beer Trail! Staying up all night stargazing! It's all worth doing, but it's also important to take a moment to relax....and Montana has tons of thermal hot springs that are great for taking a moment to unwind. Slip into the naturally-heated, mineral rich waters of some of Montana's best springs and soak up the calming vibes and amazing views! Here are some of our favorite hot springs in the state.
Yellowstone Hot Springs
Located just minutes away from Gardiner and Yellowstone National Park's north entrance, Yellowstone Hot Springs is the perfect point of relaxation in your Montana adventure. Soak in relaxing mineral springs on the edge of the Yellowstone River and watch for wildlife (elk, deer and possibly bison) on the surrounding mountain faces.
NORRIS HOT SPRINGS
A visit to Norris Hot Springs will feel like a trip to a world-class spa, but it won't cost nearly as much! They go to great lengths to make sure that the system that fills their pool is sanitary and eco-friendly. The water is drained each night, the pools are washed once a week, and the water is recycled back into nature so that it can run its natural course. You'll also find an onsite restaurant and campsite, and they often feature live music as well. So, there's pretty much nothing you need to worry about while you unwind!
BOZEMAN HOT SPRINGS
An 1890 article in the Bozeman Avant-Courier declared the water of this local hot spring to be a cure-all for afflictions like "rheumatic affections, skin diseases, dyspepsia, impurity of the blog, [and] chronic constipation..." Now, I don't know about all of that, but I can say that the warm, mineral-rich waters at the spring make for an incredibly enjoyable dip. There are 9 pools filled with natural spring water for soaking, plus a fitness center, which is perfect for working up a sweat and soothing your muscles after a nice workout or skiing trip!
CHICO HOT SPRINGS RESORT & SPA
The water at these outdoor pools can reach to a steamy 103 degrees, which means you won't find a better spring to swim in during the winter. And if swiming in their spring-fed pools isn't cutting it in the relaxation department, then you can try a Yellowstone Rock Massage from the spa, take a stroll through their lush garden, or drift off to sleep in one of their cabins. It even has a caboose that's been converted into a luxury room!
