One of the hidden secrets of Napa Valley is its naturally occurring mineral hot springs in Calistoga.

Powered by active volcanic activity, these mineral hot springs are heated by the earth and infused with skin-loving ingredients like sulfur, calcium, and magnesium. Today, these healing waters are piped directly into the pools and spas of Calistoga, offering therapeutic benefits to skin, body and mind.

The best way to access these hot springs is to book an overnight stay or a spa service at one of Calistoga’s many resorts and spas. Most offer at least one pool that pipes in these mineral-rich waters, but many offer several pools at various temperatures, from cold plunge to piping hot.

Also, be sure to peruse these spa menus closely – most resorts and spas offer communal hot springs, while a few select locations offer private or in-room experiences for couples or small groups.

Insider Tip: before you settle in for a soak, we recommend checking out the Old Faithful Geyser, which erupts every 15-30 minutes just north of downtown Calistoga.
