IN BRITISH COLUMBIA YOU NEVER WILL RUN OUT OF SPECTACULAR SCENERY AND THINGS TO DO

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 i

n 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.
