Sulphur Mountain, situated above the town of Banff, derives its name from the naturally occurring hot springs. These springs were first discovered by the area’s indigenous people and in the late 1880s, Banff Upper Hot Springs was developed as a commercial attraction. At an elevation of 5,200ft they are the highest in Canada and for over 100 years both locals and visitors alike have come to ‘take the waters’.

Bubbling up to the surface from three kilometres below the earth’s crust, the geothermal water that emerges is rich in minerals which soothe mind and body, perfect for easing away any travel-weariness. Reinvigorate yourself in Banff Upper Hot Springs’ sulphur water swimming pool and plunge pools and relax in the hot tubs surrounded by stunning mountain scenery.

What to bring: Water bottle, sunscreen, sunglasses, swimsuit (mandatory). Towel and swimsuit rentals are available on site.
