Yampah Spa in Glenwood Springs offers soaking, steaming and spa services all under one roof. Two private, clothing-optional soaking tubs, popular with individuals and couples, are available at Yampah Spa. Cold-water taps allow you to adjust the temperature of the hot mineral water that fills the tubs. Rent one or both tubs for forty-five minutes as a stand-alone option or for thirty minutes before a spa treatment. Beneath the spa are the only known natural hot spring vapor caves in North America. Three underground chambers and a cooling area are lined with benches for comfortable steaming, but bring a towel if you want to cushion your head. Clothing is required so wear a bathing suit and flip-flops and keep your steams to ten minutes at a time so you don’t overheat. After your soak, steam, massage, or spa treatments, relax in a fluffy robe and take a nap in the solarium.

Pro Tips

  • Glenwood Springs offers lots of activities so if you’re driving a long distance to get to the vapor caves, make a weekend of it and enjoy nearby Glenwood Hot Springs Pool, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, or Sunlight Mountain Resort. You can also hire a guide, or rent gear to try something new like rock climbing, ice climbing, white water rafting, kayaking, stand up paddling, and biking tours.
  • Recommended season(s): The hot springs and vapor caves are open year-round.
