The Canyon Hot Springs are located in Albert Canyon in British Columbia’s spectacular Canadian Rocky Mountains east of Revelstoke, between Glacier and Mt. Revelstoke National Parks. Canyon Hot Springs resort is open in summer, from May to September.
Water from the spring is piped almost 2 miles down the valley side to feed the 15,000-gallon hot pool and the 60,000-gallon swimming pool. Whether you choose to soak in the hot pool or swim in the warm swimming pool, your visit is sure to be an exhilarating experience. Time spent in the mineral pools is a great way to relieve the aches and pains of travelling while you relax and enjoy the pools and surrounding scenery.
The mineral waters of Albert Canyon were allegedly discovered by CPR workmen at the turn of the century. The railway employees dug a pit at the hot springs and lined it with heavy timbers.
The open air “hot tub” was used by visitors and residents for many, many years. Today the Canyon Hot Springs are some distance away, with the water from the hot springs being piped to the pools. The Albert Canyon “ghost” town remains a short distance south of the present pool site.
The village of Albert Canyon, the gorge, the peaks and the hot springs were all named for Albert Rogers, nephew of Major Rogers, who undertook many exploration trips in the area, including the discovery of Rogers Pass. Throughout the years of steam, Albert Canyon was a “pusher” station, with a small roundhouse built in 1916. There was also a CPR agent, operators, a section gang, and living quarters for the agent upstairs in the station.
Canyon Hot Springs has a great campground and RV Park, and overnight accommodation is offered in rustic chalets, log cabins, and 1 and 2 bedroom suites. Hiking trails lead from the resort, and are located in the adjacent national parks. Fishing, trail riding, mountain climbing, whitewater rafting, golf, and boating are also popular in the area.
Canyon Hot Springs is located 22 miles (35 km) east of Revelstoke on Trans-Canada Highway 1.
