Like many visors to Banff, we decided to visit the hot springs. I called ahead and spoke with the manager and they recommend arriving between 9:00 - 11:00 AM daily because after that the parking lot is packed and so is the pool. We arrived early and stayed for approximately 90 minutes luxuriating in the hot mineral waters and relaxing in the Adirondack chairs lining the pool. At $7 Canadian, it is a steal at twice the price. Don’t worry if you didn’t bring your bathing suit or a towel because you can rent them there. The pool is exceptionally clean and they even give you a FREE TOKEN for the lockers. It was nearly the highlight of our journey.
