More about the Land of Water

For thousands of years, people have recognized the restorative powers of water. Sure it can quench your thirst, but when the earth heats it up, like it does in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, the power of water is unleashed. Our water can do amazing things, like soak away your aches and pains; relax away your stress; soothe your very soul.

Millions of years of water carved Glenwood Caverns into Iron Mountain, where today, you can tour subterranean passages with amazing cave formations. Above the caverns, there are roller coasters, canyon swings and incredible views of the Roaring Fork Valley. Hundreds of years ago, the Ute Indians used the Yampah Vapor Caves to heal their bodies and minds. Now, you can soak in the healing powers of these natural steam filled caves formed by the mineral hot springs that flow through them.

In addition to the amazing amenities water creates in our community, Glenwood Springs is also home to all the mountain resort experiences you expect when vacationing in the Rockies. Other things to do in Glenwood Springs include hiking, biking, horseback riding, rafting, fishing, skiing, paragliding and zip lining (to name a few).
