Description & Details
Special water conditions
The bathing paradise of Miette Hot Springs is characterized by its unique water conditions, which are characterized by a variety of minerals. The hot spring water consists in particular of sulphate, calcium, bicarbonate, magnesium and sodium, whereby the water is always kept at a constant heat for you as a visitor. Thus, Miette Hot Springs is home to the unique product of the Rocky Mountains, in which you can relax perfectly after a long hike or a day trip.
3 pools for relaxation
The bathing world consists of a total of three sprawling outdoor pools, which hold 30, 40 and 60 degree water respectively. Just as in Radium Hot Springs, the effect of the ebb and flow of the tide is imitated just as it would be in nature. The amount of water that can be extracted from the Miette Hot Springs is also considerably larger than in the spring area around Banff, so you can enjoy the bathing world to the fullest even in winter.
View while bathing
In addition, the bathing facility captivates by the unique panorama, which is offered to you in front of the open-air facility. The facility is located in the middle of Jasper National Park, which is known for its idyllic landscape and densely overgrown mountain slopes, so you can find a quiet and peaceful place and pure relaxation. As such, the hot springs are a place you can return to year after year without losing any of their impact.
