Did you know Canada.. The Upper Hot Springs are one of nine different naturally occurring hot springs in the Banff area. At 1,585 meters of elevation (5,200 feet), Banff’s Upper Hot Springs is the highest in Canada. This is significant because its thermal waters must be driven vertically over
2,000 meters, through the Sulfur Mountain thrust fault.

Water temperature is kept at approximately 38°C with a max temperature of 47.3°C.

The Upper Hot Springs is commercially developed with many amenities including a restored 1930s heritage bathhouse, an outdoor spring fed hot pool with view of famous Mount Rundle, a Day Spa, Indoor Cafe, Gift Store and more.
