Banff Upper Hot Springs

Banff Upper Hot SpringsServices

The Banf Upper Hot Springs is a great way to "soak in" the Canadian Rockies.

As soothing as it is historic, the flow of natural spring water in the Banff Upper Hot Springs is currently insufficient to fill the pool. Until the Banff Upper Springs receives enough natural waters, municipal waters are pumped in. No matter; it's still an awesome experience.

Since 1998, greater than normal reductions in winter flows from the source of the Banff Upper Hot springs have been experienced. This has occurred quite regularly each winter in the past decade. The flow always returns in Spring time.

Those from all over the world come here to enjoy this spectacular facility admist a breathtaking backdrop.
