Fairmont Hot Springs


Although we don't like closing our pools to our guests and local swimmers, they need a little TLC once a year to keep them in great shape!

Our guest exclusive pools are scheduled to close Sunday June 7, 2015 to June 10, 2015 inclusive with an alternate date of Monday June 22 to Thursday June 25, 2015 inclusive.

Our public pools are open for your enjoyment (regular rates apply).


Crystal clear and all natural, the mineral hot springs in BC at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort are a legendary attraction and also Canada’s largest natural hot springs. Slip into the soothing hot water and feel your worries wash away as you gaze through the steam toward stunning views of Fairmont Ridge — the most prominent peaks in the Stanford Range of the Rocky Mountains. Renowned for their therapeutic qualities, Fairmont Hot Springs Resort's hot springs are among the cleanest in North America. Over 1.5 million gallons of mineral-rich BC hot spring waters flow through the pools daily, and at night the pools are drained, scrubbed, and refilled by morning.

Guests of the Lodge enjoy unlimited access to the hot springs, and to the guest hot springs complex, featuring Nordic-style hot and cold plunge pools, a steam room, a sauna, and a private outdoor soaking pool.

The hot springs are open almost every day of the year, including Christmas, and closing times change during peak and shoulder season.
