Beautiful walk up to the off trail area. We were unable to finish the loop in the canyon due to rain and mud, but very much enjoyed what we were able to do. You can do this hike in tennis shoes on a nice day,...More

We went up to the Hot Springs thinking it was going to be a bit bigger and maybe a little bit more in the “natural surroundings”, but it was on the smaller size and seemed like just a swimming pool/hot tub. The water temperature was...More

Nice place to come after a couple of days on long mountain trails. Everything that you might need is available to hire at a small cost.

This was a wonderful stop after we came back from the Gondola ride. The place was affordable and clean, it was very busy but that is to be expected. Don't expect a natural rock spring, it's more like a swimming pool, but it is very...More

The wife and I rode city bus from downtown Banff to the hot springs up on the mountain. A long line to get in, but the clerk was friendly, efficient, quick to process the visitors. 6:00 PM was evidently the peak time to visit. The...More

Great experience bathing in the pool with thermal waters, enjoying the views of the mountains. Reasonably priced, great fun wearing the old time bathing suits.

If you were looking for basically a slightly warmer-than-usual conventional pool filled with 50 jostling tourists-turned-bathers to relax after a full day of touristic activities, then you've come to the right place. If you were coming, expecting that you would find an exotic location with...More

After a hike, decided to get a little soak in. They were working on the parking lot. Signage was mediocre at best. Had to park along one side of the road (no forewarning). Going through the line was the speed of molasses, but the person...More

It's a pool, not a very nice or big one. The day we stopped by the pool was so crowded there was no space to sit along the edge. Might as well just go to a heated pool. Cafeteria was very low end.

Really depends on what time and what season you are going. During the summer it is almost impossible To get parking becuase. The hot spring is sharing its parking with the gondola. But if you come early in the morning you... More
