The soothing waters of the Banff Upper Hot Springs have been rejuvenating visitors for over a century. Surrounded by the spectacular Canadian Rockies, the outdoor, mineral-fed hot pool offers a natural way to relax, unwind and soak in the mountain scenery.
Visitors to the pool can also enjoy a variety of non-soaking attractions within the Upper Springs Bathhouse. Interpretive exhibits provide a glimpse into the history and hydrology of the springs. The bathhouse also features a poolside restaurant, a gift shop and spacious change rooms with heated floors.
Open year round, Banff Upper Hot Springs is located on Mountain Avenue, 4 km south of the Banff town site, and 128 km west of Calgary. ATM machine on site.
