Napa Valley's Wellness and Outdoor Destination
At the northernmost tip of Napa Valley, Calistoga is known for its geothermal hot springs and nutrient-rich mud comprised of volcanic ash. Dating back to the 1860s, wellness warriors flocked here for a warm-weather retreat.
The town’s mineral-rich waters and natural geothermal hot spring pools make it home to a number of spas, where visitors can soak it all in. Lincoln Avenue, Calistoga’s main drag, is lined with shops, tasting rooms, and eateries.
