After a long day of enjoying the many activities that Radium has to offer, soak away your aches and pains in the 40°C (104°F) therapeutic, odorless mineral hot springs. It is located within the boundaries of Kootenay National Park, considered to be amongst the finest in the world. Unlike some Hot Springs, these waters are free of odorous sulphur.
Radium Hot Springs and the surrounding area is known as a golfer’s paradise with 17 golf courses within a short driving distance, considered some of the best in the province. We offer accommodation, golfing and dining in an affordable package deal. Let us take care of your holiday all the way.
This beautiful village boasts almost every recreational activity one can think of, including mini golf, go-karts, paintball, bumper boats, a petting zoo, trail rides, biking trails, canoe and kayak trips, fishing or bird watching. For the more adventurous, there are many rock climbing opportunities in the surrounding mountain ranges, or paragliding and hang-gliding from the peak of Mount Swansee, one of the best mountain soaring sites in the world.
The mountains around Radium are home to extensive wildlife. Sheer cliffs, surging snow-fed streams and lush river basins characterize the area and provide sanctuary to thriving population of wolf, coyote, cougar, lynx, wolverine, deer, mountain goat, big horn sheep, grizzly and black bear. A short trip is worthwhile to the Wolf Centre at Panorama Mountain Village.
