The Banff Upper Hot Springs
is a naturally fed soaking pool and the only hot springs pool in Banff National Park
. With water temperatures between 37°C and 40°C, winter is the perfect season to enjoy a soak in the rejuvenating waters of this natural wonder. The Banff Upper Hot Springs is open daily during the winter months and is just 1 hour and 30 minutes away from Calgary along the Trans-Canada Highway. Beat the crowds by going early in the morning or during weekdays.
Spend a relaxing day at the spa at the Kananaskis Nordic Spa
, just 1 hour west of Calgary and close to Canmore. A series of outdoor pools, saunas, and steam rooms will help you relax with a process called hydrotherapy, as you cycle through each water temperature and soak the day away.
