RADIUM HOT SPRINGS
Radium Hot Springs, informally and commonly called Radium, is a village of approximately 800 people situated in the East Kootenay region of British Columbia. The village is named for the hot springs located in the nearby Kootenay National Park. From Banff, Alberta, it is accessible via Highway 93.
Several golf courses are located nearby, along with 675 hotel and motel rooms.
The hot springs complex itself contains two large pools, one with hot water for soaking (usually around the temperature of 39 °C (102 °F), the other a two-thirds Olympic swimming pool that is usually around 29 °C (84 °F). There is also a hot-tub-sized pool that has been dubbed the "Plunge Pool", because the water can be hot – right from the source at 44 °C (111 °F) – or cold, right from a creek running beneath the pools.
Whether you are visiting the local Radium golf courses, skiing or snowboarding at Panorama Ski Resort, or just passing through Kootenay National Park, the Radium Hot Springs are a unique thing to do and not to be missed!
The mineral water of Radium Hot Springs is uniquely odourless and clear, making this hot springs perfect for a relaxing soak.
