The Fairmon Hot Springs attracts half a million annual visitors

Located on ancient trading and hunting routes, the

odourless and sulphurless waters of the springs

were first used for medicinal and healing purposes

by the Kutenai Indians.

The earliest discovery of the springs by white

explorers dates back to George Simpson in 1841.

Today, the Fairmont Hot Springs Resort attracts

half a million annual visitors, and includes access

to the general public.

Location: Fairmont Hot Springs is located on

Highway 93/95 at the northern end of Columbia

Lake in the Columbia River Valley in the BC Rockies,

between Canal Flats and Invermere, 81 miles

(130 km) north of Cranbrook.
