Relaxing Harrison Hot SpringsNovember 7, 2007 at 9:12 am | Posted in aging, health, relaxation, taking care | Leave a comment
Just returned from 2 days at Harrison Hot Springs - a jewel of a place 2 hours east of Vancouver. I don’t know what they put in that water:) The mineral content is high so it just infuses the body and balances the system. My body felt significantly more relaxed and looser every time i sat in those pools for a while.
There are 3 hotpools i enjoyed each with increasing temperatures from 98 degrees to 104 degrees farenheit. The beautiful outdoor setting of the hot pools within the hotel area is stately and relaxing. The hotter pool is indoors in a facility with a spa as well as a separate facility that included a pool, hotpool and changerooms with steam rooms!
We were there for 2 nights – saturday and sunday – the former quite busy with a conference and also the traditional Haney to Harrison run. Sunday was much quieter although throughout the day there were many people around lunching and walking.
This hotel sits on beautiful lake front with glacier views and hills rising up on all sides of the lake. Many people come for the summertime fun however i am recommending it in the off season (an internet special room rate). The cooler air temperatures really adds to the enjoyment of the hotpools.
My whole body feels looser and my mind clear. What an amazing way to spend a couple of days if the goal is true relaxation.
