Guide to Natural Hot Springs Pools
Deep down within the Earth lies a geothermal energy that heats up natural mineral water, which sends hot water bubbling to the surface. Sometimes these hot springs pools are open and safe for public use, many times they are not.
These geothermal hot springs are not always open to soaking or safe, quite the contrary. Some are deadly. Take Yellowstone National Park in USA for example. Geothermal hot springs bubble up in sectioned off areas of the park because of their deadly nature. However, there are safe all natural hot springs all around the world, both at luxury resorts and primitive pools.
Hot springs range in size, temperature, cost, facilities, etc. That’s part of what’s so charming about them, each one is different. Most are fairly simple resorts that showcase their hot springs and sometimes will offer spa facilities and massages. The minerals in these waters provide health benefits and therapeutic relaxation that’s worth traveling the world for.
On the other end of the spectrum lies primitive pools. These free mineral hot springs range in their development, which is usually “user developed”. You can find these on the sides of roads, deep within the national forests, or in an old volcano, such as is the case in Iceland.
