Radium Hot Springs soothe the body above Radium in British Columbia, Canada.
The clear, bright day is ideal for the three hour road trip from Calgary, Alberta to Radium, British Columbia, Canada. After a stop for a photo opportunity of Castle Mountain at Castle Junction, Hwy 93 south will proceed to Radium on winding, roller-coaster highway across the Continental Divide and through Kootenay National Park in British Columbia.
Views from high points are breathtaking. In Radium, some light hiking on Redstreak Mountain provides panoramic views across the mountain-surrounded town.
A soak in Radium Hot Springs is mandatory and on the drive back across the Continental Divide a stop just south of Castle Junction initiates a short, scenic hike across the suspension foot-bridge to the snowbound Paint Pots.
