Recharge Your Glenwood Springs Wellness Itinerary
Rejuvinate at Historic Hotel Colorado
Centrally located in Glenwood Springs, close to hot springs, spas, downtown, and outdoor activities, Hotel Colorado invites its guests to refresh and revitalize in a setting that is always stunning but never stuffy. For the ultimate wellness getaway, we recommend mixing and matching the options below to suit both your schedule and relaxation requirements.
Option 1: Hot Springs Hiatus
Begin your wellness retreat by indulging in Glenwood Springs’ renowned geothermal amenities. Unwind at the historic Glenwood Hot Springs Pool, conveniently located across the street from Hotel Colorado. Spend the day soaking in the resort’s two enormous outdoor mineral pools. The larger one is the perfect temperature for wintertime swimming and splashing, while the other is toasty warm and therapeutic.
You can also choose to bask in the serenity of the Iron Mountain Hot Springs and the newly opened WorldSprings. The classic side of the riverside resort is family-friendly, with 20 soaking pools that include a freshwater pool with an attached and elevated jetted spa. The newer, WorldSprings side caters to the over-21 crowd and features 13 experience pools that marvelously mimic the mineral content of famous hot springs from around the globe.
Option 2: Explore Local Healing Arts Culture
Beyond its renowned geothermal waters, Glenwood Springs boasts a vibrant healing arts scene. Dive into a world of herbal remedies and natural skincare at Homsted, Glenwood’s hometown apothecary. Knowledgeable owners can even craft personalized tinctures, ointments, and remedies tailored to boost your well-being. You’ll also find topical CBD remedies for natural pain relief at dispensaries around town. Cannabidiol, the main ingredient in CBD products, is touted to be efficacious for everything from minor aches to mood disorders. For healthful, organic produce, and groceries, stock up on essentials at Natural Grocers at Glenwood Meadows Shopping Center.
Option 3: Embrace Spa Bliss
Pamper yourself with spa treatments that promise ultimate relaxation at Yampah Spa & Vapor Caves. Choose from a variety of therapies that include a full menu of massage treatments, facials, mineral baths, and even more esoteric offerings like Reiki and sound healing. If you go, be sure to check out the monthly special which bundles multiple treatments for the ultimate day at the spa. All of Yampah’s packages include admission to the property’s historic vapor caves, a place that is considered both therapeutic and sacred to America’s indigenous people.
Option 4: Connect with Creation
Experience the regenerative powers of nature with time spent in the great outdoors. Make Hotel Colorado your basecamp for adventure and connect with the wonders of nature. In winter, try skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling at Sunlight Mountain Resort. Get some fresh air on a walk. For an easy stroll on an easy incline, hop on the Rio Grande Trail; to break a sweat, go for a vertical challenge and trek up Red Mountain. With trails galore, cycling—both mountain and road biking—is another option for exercise.
And, in the heat of summer, give watersports like rafting, kayaking, and fishing on the area’s rivers a try. Whatever you do to get moving, the benefits of al fresco exercise—reduced stress, improved mood, and an overall sense of well-being—are worth the effort!
Option 5: Retail Therapy
Wrap up your wellness retreat with a dose of retail therapy. Shopping for mementos to remember your trip is part of vacation fun. You’ll find an abundance of locally-owned stores just a short walk from the hotel. Stroll around the North Glenwood neighborhood and across the pedestrian bridge to the downtown corridor to explore what’s in store. Before you pack your bags and leave for home, be sure to make a stop at Legends Coffee and Gift Shop in the Hotel Colorado. Grab a cup of coffee for the road and some last-minute souvenirs to recall your bliss-filled stay at Hotel Colorado.
