Rocky Mountain Relaxation in Jasper, Canada: Miette Hot Springs
Jasper’s Miette Hot Springs a Cool Spot for Soaking in the Canadian Rockies
If you really want to soak up the atmosphere on your Rocky Mountain vacation make sure to drop by for a dip in Jasper’s magical Miette Hot Springs.
Miette Hot Springs reach the highest temperature of any of the series of hot springs in the Canadian Rockies (Banff Hot Springs and Radium Hot Springs, being the other popular options). This makes it one of the most relaxing natural baths a traveller could ever hope to hop into, especially after a long day of hiking in Jasper National Park.
Although temperatures hit upwards of 53 degrees at the source, the bright blue pools of Miette Hot Springs average approximately 40 degrees
Celsius by the time the water flows from the springs through Sulphur Creek and into the resort.
Rivaling even the best of Japanese onsens, Miette Hot Springs boasts two hot pools and one cold nestled into the incredible Rocky Mountain
scenery. Recent updates to the facility have improved the overall experience for travelers by offering more food and beverage options and upgrading accessibility for disabled travelers.
Nearby Miette Hot Springs Resort has been up and running since 1938, is walking distance to the pools and offers very comfortable, family
friendly cabins and a good restaurant.
The Miette Hot Springs is a little outside the town of Jasper (approximately 60km East). To get to this amazing Rocky Mountain site, take the
Yellowhead Highway 45km to the Miette Road junction and follow the Miette Hot Springs Road South all the way to the springs.
