  • Located at the North entrance of the YellowStone, it is a unique place where hot springs and a fresh river blend. Natural saunas are created in the form of small pools, it is divine. that can't be overlooked

  • See what I tell them? It was a wonderful experience, we went with family from Bozeman, Montana, in December, so there was snow everywhere and not only that, also lots of wildlife along the way, there were many eagles, birds, moose, llamas, buffaloes, amazing scenery. When we arrive at the place you must park the vehicle and walk about 1 km or less to get to the river (on the way you still see a lot of fauna) you must leave the belongings, clothes, shoes, everything, in an open place to be able to go to the water so it is better not to carry much. As I commented before we went in December that there was snow everywhere so I felt that I froze but it was not lol, the water was a fusion of hot with cold so you should go find a place to your taste of temperature , after spending the wonderful time in the pools comes how little tricky it is to get out of the nice water to put your feet naked on the ice to change your clothes, but all that you do in minutes and the satisfaction you feel of having made that amazing Experienci You're not taking anything or anyone. SUPER RECOMMENDED FOR EVERYONE. Note: Please if someone could tell me if the names of the animals in the photos are correct or incorrect I would appreciate lots.

  • Went here with my son and had a blast. It was 5° outside! It's about a half mile walk to get there. There is no changing facilities so u need to wear what your going to swim in. The boiling river is where a hot spring meets the river. It's like torture in a fun way, you hit spots that are freezing cold and then spots that are super hot! You have to find a spot where it blends perfectly and the water feels great. Highly recommend visiting!
  • A must stop, attraction! Especially in the winter months when, there is plenty of amazing wildlife and views to take in!
