What better than a Banff hotel with a swimming pool that looks out across Canada’s oldest national park? After a day on hiking and biking around Banff National Park, or ripping it up on the Big 3’s ski slopes, you can ease yourself into a heated outdoor pool in many of the hotels, lodges, inns and resorts both in Banff, Canmore and Lake Louise and in the park’s more remote villages. Whether you’re looking for a fitness pool for some morning laps, a warm pool to sink into at the end of an energetic day or a place for the kids to let off steam in flumes and slides, the hotels in Banff National Park have you covered.
For a holiday filled with water sports, summer in Banff National Park is a great choice. It was the discovery of Upper Hot Springs in 1884 that inspired both tourism and the opening of a national park here. But while the thermal waters are perfect at the end of the day, the excellent kayaking across Lake Louise or Moraine Lake and white-water rafting trips down Kicking Horse or Bow River will help you really appreciate your hotel pool when you get back.
Summer is also a great time to visit the park for hiking. There are over a thousand miles of walking trails, so plot a path and pack a picnic. You might choose to take your camera to Rock Isle Lake, one of the most photographed landscapes in the Rockies, or head to Marsh Loop to see the thermal waters bubbling away. For waterfalls galore walk out to Johnston Canyon Lower and Upper Falls and some cooling mists – just what you need after a summer walk. If you need to give your legs a break, take a trip up Banff Gondola to enjoy stunning views over the peaks or visit the Upper Hot Springs to soak away your aches and pains in the soothing warm water.
There are many excellent hotels with pools in Banff National Park, which will serve as the perfect base for your holiday here.
