There are few better ways to unwind after a solid day of adventuring in Jasper National Park than by enjoying some well-earned R&R time at the Miette Hot Springs!

At up to 54 degrees Celsius in temperature, these naturally occurring springs are the hottest in the Mountain National Parks. To make them safe for explorers to enjoy, the water is collected, chlorinated and filtered, and cooled to 40 degrees before being poured into the pools at the end of Miette Road in the Fiddle Valley.

Located about an hour east of Jasper off of Highway 16, you can make visiting the hot springs part of a full day adventure. Explore the interpretive trail around a historic mine site and visit the original pools down at the source of the springs along Sulphur Creek. If you’re feeling up for a more challenging adventure, hike the popular Sulphur Skyline trail and be rewarded with some truly spectacular views.

When you’re ready to relax, choose between four different temperature pools to soak in located amongst tranquil towering peaks and free roaming wildlife.
