Recharge after a day full of adventure

Slow down and enjoy a moment of relaxation in the hot springs after a busy day of exploring in the mountains. For a particularly magical experience, visit during sunset on a winter evening and watch the snow fall around you and on the surrounding peaks as the mountain air cools.

The Natural History of the Banff Upper Hot Springs

The water in the Banff Upper Hot Springs is heated geothermally, bubbling up to the surface from three kilometres (1.8 miles) into the earth’s crust. The natural temperature of the water that emerges varies depending on the season. During the winter, the temperature is as hot as 47°C (116°F). In the spring, the flow increases and the temperature cools off to a minimum of 27°C (81°F).
