When it comes to planning a vacation, travellers want exhilarating and fun-filled activities they can do with their families. But quality relaxation is also an essential element when getting away from it all.
Why not experience both exhilaration and relaxation by ziplining in the day and visiting the hot springs by night?
Faster, Longer, Higher
When we experience something exhilarating, or even a tad frightening, the hypothalamus in our brain triggers our adrenal glands to produce adrenaline. This natural hormone boosts our energy and gives us a feeling of power and strength. We literally feel like we can fly.
Speaking of flying, there is no better adrenaline rush than zipping over trees and valleys at speeds that will allow you to catch up with the birds.
Ziplining is also one of the most safest and fun things to do in the Kootenays.
At Mineral Mountain Ziplines, you can travel up to 80/km an hour and as high as 150 feet (46 meters) above the forest floor. Our longest line, at 1,500 feet (450 meters), will have you zipping above Fairmont Creek Canyon.
Your heart will beat, your senses will awaken, and you will literally be floating on air. So how does one come down from such a rush?
Soak, Stretch, Sigh
Mineral Mountain Ziplines goes above the line as a zipline adventure, and what makes it even more special is that it is located at a resort famous for its natural mineral hot springs!
Talk about a marriage made in heaven. With the hottest pool kept at a balmy 39 degrees Celcius (102 degrees Fahrenheit), along with a swimming and dive pool for those who want things a little cooler, imagine ending your day of ziplining by soaking in crystal clear and mineral-rich waters while looking up to the surrounding mountains (or stars!).
You will be completed rejuvenated and ready to start the adventure all over again.
There are also specific health benefits to soaking in hot springs:
- The absorption of minerals, such as calcium and sodium bicarbonate, induces better blood circulation
- Naturally warmed water helps reduce stress and promotes better sleep
- Water buoyancy helps with natural pain relief
- Rough, dry skin softens from high silica content
Fairmont Hot Spring Resort’s public pools are open in summer seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., with a late-night swim rate (1.5 hours before the pools close) for those who want to look at the stars. Family rates are also available.
