Adventure Vacation to Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort

By Hitomi Farrell

If you want to enjoy a nice hot springs vacation in beautiful nature, Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort in Nathrop is THE place to go! From natural hot springs near the creek to hot springs pools, this resort has got it all. It’s the reason this four-season destination attracts so many people from all over the world.

Outdoor Adventures in Nathrop, Colorado 

If you visit Colorado, you must get out and experience some outdoor adventure. Amongst the pristine nature of Nathrop with views of fourteeners (14,000-foot mountains), you can participate in activities such as snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoeing and dog sled tours in the winter. Since I was there in the summer, I decided to try something different: zip lining. I was a bit scared at first, but as I rode through the canyon hanging on a rope like Tarzan, I felt so great. It was amazing zipping along at speeds of up to 40 mph high above the canyon floor. After that, I stopped by St. Elmo’s Historic Ghost Town. As I stood and gazed at the abandoned mining town amongst beautiful mountains, I felt like I traveled back in time to the late 1800s. You can also tour St. Elmo’s by ATV as well.

There are so many other activities you can enjoy in the summer too. How about hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, fishing and golf amid the gorgeous scenery?

Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort

After a day full of outdoor adventures, Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort awaits you with ultimate relaxation. I headed back to the resort, and let myself soak in the natural hot spring right in the midst of Chalk Creek. I completely surrendered to the relaxation of a real natural hot spring while appreciating the beautiful nature surrounding me. This was truly a heavenly experience for a nature lover such as myself. After my mind and body were totally relaxed, I went to the spa and had a massage in their creekside massage room. I could not think of any other luxury that I could possibly have. There’s a spa menu, juice bar, saunas, steam rooms and daily schedule of fitness classes. If you visit here for a family vacation, no need to worry. They have a 400-foot hot water slide that will keep your children entertained! For lodging, you can choose from the main lodge, hillside hotel rooms, Cliffside condos and cabins that can accommodate a large family.

Enjoy action packed outdoor activities, and then completely relax in the hot springs. We all deserve a vacation like this every once in a while. I had a chance to escape the grind of busy, everyday life and feel rejuvenated. These were, without a doubt, some of the happiest days of my life.
