Relax at Miette Hot Springs

JASPER, ALBERTA –The hot springs in Miette is one of the top places to visit at Jasper National Park. Experience the calming effects of mineral springs against a backdrop of breath-taking scenery, and soak in the overall amazing atmosphere.

Miette Hot Springs are amongst the top choices for springs in the country and Canadian Rockies. And since the facilities received a makeover in 2007, the reputation has only sparkled with more satisfaction.

The location of the springs itself is about 35 miles from the town of Jasper, and about an hour’s drive. Parking is not a problem, and the drive is ideal for photo opportunities and wildlife spotting.

Upon arrival you might see hikers gearing up for a journey through the wilderness, only to reward themselves with a nice dip in the Miette Hot Springs when finished. Inside the building are towel rentals, which are great if you don’t want to roam around our next destination with a heavy and wet extra.

Arm yourself with a bathing suit and a pair of shoes you don’t mind getting wet like sandals. However, normal street shoes must be left behind, it keeps the pool area clean and germ-free.

Dressing rooms are divided by male and female, and each locker room offers coin-operated lockers to store your belongings in. Be sure to have some extra change on hand, as the locals only accept Canadian dollar coins.

Once you’re showered off, enter the pool area and take your choice from two hot pools and one cold pool. If the weather is warm, lounge around in one of the many sun bathing chairs near the pools.

Water in the hot pools is controlled and sits comfortable at around 104 degree Fahrenheit. The cool pool takes its water from the Fiddle River, and is a relaxing 45 degree Fahrenheit. Both pools hold minerals that naturally nourish the skin. The noticeable smell, resembling a bottle of mineral water, comes from the underground source.

The usual Miette Hot Springs method is trying out both hot and cold pools, depending on the season. Dip and soak which ever way you see fit, the overall experience is what vacationers will always remember.
