Visit the Ouray Hot Spring

Ahhh, time for a post-soak snack and coffee. Head on over to Ouray’s main street strip and grab a delicious dessert or coffee at Mouse’s Chocolates & Coffee

Self-Guided Tours

You deserve it – you probably hiked (or went skiing) at high elevation today. Take a box of chocolate home and treat yourself or a friend. What is that saying – oh, life is short, eat dessert first!

Visit Orvis Hot Spring

If you are up for a different hot springs adventure, Orvis Hot Springs, outside of Ridgway, is clothing optional. It is super fun to visit at night. Check out the ‘Lobster Pot’ (the name of one of the hot pools). 

Self-Guided Tours

The Chipeta Lodge is in Ridgway, Colorado, which is about 20 minutes north of Ouray. It is an hour from Telluride if you head straight to or from the lodge.
