Origins of Hot Water

Banff Upper Hot Springs

Banff Upper Hot Springs

During a soak in the 40°C (104°F) Banff Upper Hot Springs you might wonder how these waters came to be. Precipitation that seeps into Rundle Mountain’s western slope descends through 3 km (2 mi) of sedimentary rock where it’s heated, pressurized and mineral-enriched. After 100s of years it surfaces via the Sulphur Mountain Thrust Fault. Enjoy the 1930s bathhouse (upgraded 1996), take a spa treatment, and visit the café, interpretive displays and gift shop. —RM
