Idaho is the ultimate winter wonderland. Skiing, sledding, snowshoeing, sleigh rides...you name it, Idaho's got it. But if you ask us, our very favorite activity during the snowy months is to suit up and soak in one of Idaho's relaxing hot springs.

Kirkham Hot Springs is high on our list of favorite hot springs across the state. It's like a dream. With pools and waterfalls of varying temperatures, there's something for everyone.

Nestled right up on the South Fork of the Payette River, the only thing more soothing than the warm water is the view you take in as you soak. The rushing river and mountains covered in snow make for an idyllic backdrop.
