Radium Hot Springs Kootenay National Park

Bask in our warmth Hot springs form when water seeps kilometres deep into the earth, where it is heated and pressurized. The water flows back to the surface, laden with sulphate, calcium, bicarbonate, magnesium, sodium and other minerals, ready to soothe and relax you. The earliest hot spring pools were made of gravel, logs and mud. Today’s facilities feature the best mineral water treatment available, ensuring that public health and environmental standards are exceeded. Sacred to Indigenous peoples and treasured by settlers, the Canadian Rockies Hot Springs continue to rejuvenate travellers from around the world. As you enjoy the mountain scenery, take a moment to relax and soak in our natural warmth.

Kootenay road trip

Radium Hot Springs

It once took a whole day to drive from Banff to Radium Hot Springs in a Ford Model T. Today, the drive takes less than two hours and there are plenty of stops to enjoy along the way.

Open year-round After you explore all that Kootenay National Park and the surrounding Columbia Valley have to offer, cap off your day with a relaxing soak in our naturally heated mineral waters.

1

Stand on the Continental Divide. Stroll the 0.5-km Fireweed Loop and discover how fire renews forests.

During the summer, families will love swimming and diving in the cooler swimming pool (29° C) while the hot pool is a wonderful place to kick back and relax at any time of the year.

2

Discover Marble Canyon’s deep carved chasms and gorgeous turquoise waters from seven different bridges.

In the winter, heavily frosted trees and rocks, glittering snowflakes and steam rising off the hot water make for a magical and memorable experience.

3

Watch a show of nature’s colours as you wander along the 6.8-km (return) trail from Marble Canyon to the Paint Pots.
