Banff Upper Hot Springs Tours

At Banff Upper Hot Springs, you can soak up the beauty of nature in a very civilized manner. Located in the town of Banff (in Alberta’s Banff National Park), the hot springs have plenty of modern spa amenities in a lovely historic bath house. The hot springs were discovered in 1884, and shortly thereafter were included in Banff National Park (Canada’s first national park). Travelers have come to Banff to ‘take the waters’ for more than a century, and with the backdrop of Banff National Park’s incredible alpine scenery in clear view, it’s easy to see why. The outdoors hot pool provides a stunning vista across the valley to Mount Rundle. Because Banff Upper Hot Springs is a natural hot springs, water volumes are affected by rainfall and fluctuate seasonally. (The waters are ‘topped up’ with heated municipal water if the flow gets too low.) The top five minerals found in the hot springs are: sulphate, calcium, bicarbonate, magnesium, and sodium.
