Hot Springs

Bathing beauties

Soaking in hot springs has been part of Canadian Rockies' tourism since it began, but these days it's not quite as lovely as you might expect.

Aside from a difficult-to-access scattering of undeveloped hot springs in the mountains, most are larger facilities with a municipal-swimming-pool-vibe.

Still, they're not expensive and the waters' therapy is effective as ever – particularly on sore muscles after a long hike.
