This spa nestled in the Rockies is the ultimate road trip destination (PHOTOS)

Hanging in an outdoor hot tub is what we’d call a good time any day of the year, but there’s just something about cozying up under warm waters in the depths of winter that gives us the best kind of goosebumps.

Luckily for you, Kananaskis Nordic Spa, which is just a few hours away from Edmonton by car, gives visitors the chance to sit back and relax while taking in a breathtaking Rocky Mountain view.

Whether it’s in the middle of summer or during the dark winter days, a weekend road trip is the perfect way to break out of your boring day-to-day routine.

The total drive from Edmonton is around four hours, but the stunning views of the Rocky Mountains while you enjoy the spa make it more than worth it.

For just $70 a day (that’s less than $10 an hour if you stay all day), you can have access to three outdoor pools, four steam/sauna cabins, and a bistro outfitted with mid-spa-sesh snacks.

The spa is open seven days a week, with hours running from 9 am to 9 pm Sunday to Thursday and 9 am to 11 pm on Friday and Saturday.

With the recent cold snap and snow that the region has seen over the past month, the area has become something of a winter wonderland — the perfect setting for some steamy relaxation.

Don’t believe us? Just take a look for yourself:
