Radium Hot Springs January 14, 2017

Saturday January 14, 2017 was the day for a one day road trip to Radium Hot Springs in British Columbia. From where I reside it is about a three and a half hour drive. This is Highway 93 from a bit north of Banff and heading west into British Columbia. It was a bit icy.

Being close to the mountains allows you to see sights like this.

Along Highway 93 you do not have to go far to see views like this. This one is just outside Radium and right beside the highway.

Heading west just before you enter the town of Radium.

The whole complex is being renovated. The hot pool is kept at about 39C. I stopped to try it out. It was warm but not hot. There are a few hot springs in this area of British Columbia. Fairmont Hot Springs is just a bit south of here and I find it hotter. It is an easy day trip from Calgary, Alberta.

In the lower right is a lifeguard chair and umbrella that someone never bothered removing. It is completely iced over.


  1. Hi BW, have you tracked how many miles a month you travel during your excursions?

    1. It is less than you think. From where I live to Radium it is about 180 miles one way. I am not out every weekend.

  2. That's a beautiful drive from the Trans-Canada down to Radium Hot Springs. We drove it in the summer and it was gorgeous. We stopped at one place to view a waterfall and take a little walk. The springs were nice but I think the drive was even better.

  3. Beautiful pictures... almost makes me like snow... almost...
