Known for our sunny skies and healing waters, Ouray and Ridgway are the perfect destinations for revitalizing your body and soul. After a long day of adventures, there’s no better way to end your day than soaking in natural hot springs.
Throughout the year, you can soak in the area's hot springs – a centuries-old tradition. Nothing tops off a winter day like a soak in our sulfur-free hot springs, some shopping downtown, a warm meal and drink at one of our cozy restaurants, and a soft bed to fall into.
Soaking in hot springs has many health benefits*:

With seven soaking areas (four outside and three inside), a sauna and natural landscaping, Orvis Hot Springs offers a variety of experiences for the avid soaker. The waters have seven main naturally-occurring minerals with various health benefits, and range from 90 degrees to 112 degrees Fahrenheit. They are most famous for their lithium content, highly sought after due to its soothing effects that naturally melt away stress and anxiety. Most pools are clothing optional but the indoor pool requires swim suits, plus the private tubs offer a secluded setting.
