Soak in the Banff Upper Hot Springs

Soak in history, mountain air and mineral waters at the Banff Upper Hot Springs. Nestled high on the slopes of Sulphur Mountain, the pools offer contemplation along with rejuvenation.

Easing into the hot springs, it’s hard to know if the momentary shiver of delight that runs through you comes from the cool breeze blowing up the valley or the warmth of naturally heated geothermal waters. Either way, the feeling of floating suspended between the mountains and the sky is one you won’t forget.
