Hot Springs

The Springs Resort

A soak in the “healing waters” of the Great Pagosa Spring is the perfect finish for any adventure!  The Springs Resort is located just 200 yards from Pagosa Outside, terraced to overlook the beautiful San Juan River.  They offer twenty-three 100% mineral-water hot spring pools, including a mineral-water swimming pool. Varying temperatures ranging from 83-114 °F ensure you will find the perfect comfort level.  The medicinal effects of the water were studied by U.S. Army physicians in the 1860’s and the reports concluded: “The waters of Pagosah are without doubt the most wonderful and beneficial in medicinal effects that have ever been discovered.”

Hot Air Ballooning

Rocky Mountain Balloon Adventures

For once, a fantasy can become a reality.  If you’ve been dreaming about flying, now’s your chance!  Your adventure begins when you meet the crew at 538 Village Drive shortly after sunrise when the mountain air is still calm and stable.  Ballooning is a “hands-on” participation sport and they will enlist your energy in the set-up and inflation of the balloon.  You’ll want to have your camera ready to capture the excitement as the 120 foot tall giant rises from the ground!  You’ll spend 30 minutes in the air, but plan on 3 to 3 1/2 hours for the entire experience.  The adventure is not over when you land, as you can assist them in the deflation and packing up of the balloon.  This process always draws comments of disbelief that something so enormous can be packed away so quickly and compactly.  You’ll then experience the 200-year-old tradition of a champagne (or juice) celebration while enjoying muffins and receiving your personalized flight certificate.
