There may be no greater pleasure in life than taking a dip in a hot springs. The warmth of the water combines with the coolness of the air to heighten your senses. As your body descends into the warm abyss, you feel the tension and stress literally melt from your body. After a period of time, you enter a tranquil state of total peace. If it sounds like a religious experience that’s because it seems that way to us.

We have visited hot springs on four continents and each offers something different and unique. The cascading white travertine pools of Pamukkale in Turkey differ completely from the man-made grandeur of the Glenwood Hot Springs Pool in Colorado. While the small pools in the Tuscan hillside of Saturnia may be our favorite, we felt the most relaxed while sitting in a small hot pot at the base of Machu Picchu in Peru. Wherever the geology favors hot springs, you’ll find aficionados. And we’ll be right there with them! Here are some of our experiences.
