The thermal resources of Copahue are composed of fumaroles, minerals that melt the waters of melting, sludge and algae, giving rise to a variety of minerals. Sulphate, sulphurous, ferruginous, each mineral gives a special color to the springs. we find green, gray and transparent waters. The thermal village has more than a dozen springs of mineral-medicinal waters.

With the intention of expanding wellness tourism and expanding the traditional seasonality of Copahue (December - May), from the year 2016 with a great effort and bet, was born the winter product Termas y Nieve. To natural resources is added the striking environment of permanent snow on the banks of the Volcano. It is a unique experience in South America and the transfer to the hot springs is done in caterpillars, pisa snows or snowmobiles, which makes the trip to Copahue a very exciting tourist attraction.

Within the winter season, Termas del Neuquén had very important sporting events: the first meeting of snowmobiles, a trail race with snowshoeing called "Copahue Extremo", was also the scene for high sky encounter mountain, Snowkite, crossings in motorcycles or vehicles adapted for snow, and gastronomic events.

Among the activities offered by Copahue is in February "Copahue Medita", a week combining thermal benefits with holistic therapies, meditation workshops, reiki, healthy eating, family constellations, yoga, oxygenation and talks about alternative medicine .

It was complemented by talks and workshops related to children´s pathologies and healthy eating ...

The program has the purpose of dedicating all the therapeutic tools that have thermal baths of Copahue to the children. A special nebulization area was opened for children, therapeutic protocols were adapted and staff were trained in the care of minors for their special physiological needs due to their age.

The most interesting thing was to achieve the conjunction of a Terma School space so that parents can have proximity to professionals who are introducing innovative and avant-garde treatments to treat different pathologies of children and at the same time have spaces for games and creativity in an environment that is generally dedicated to the elderly. The first edition was a success they passed more than 200 children by the terma was the weekend with more children of the season, the parents thanked many the spaces of exchange and APRENDISAJE and the children could feel that the thermal baths are a place for they.
