As the hottest mineral springs in the Canadian Rockies, Miette Hot Springs provides an excellent alternative to the otherwise physically demanding things to do in Jasper National Park. Water flows from the mountain at a piping 129 degrees Fahrenheit before being cooled to the much more manageable range of 98 to 104 degrees. When you're not soaking, you can take a walk along the easy Source of Springs trail or challenge yourself with the roughly 5-mile Sulphur Skyline trail. Also on-site: a gift shop and the Fiddle Valley Café, which serves a variety of meal options.

Previous tourists praised the abundance of soaking pools and beautiful scenery. However, the changing rooms received mixed reviews in regards to their cleanliness.   

Located east of Yellowhead Highway on a spur road, the Miette Hot Springs sit on the northeastern edge of the park. Keep in mind, the springs are closed from early October to early May. Prices for admission are CA$7.05 (about $5.70) for adults, CA$5.15 (about $3.90) for youths and CA$6.15 (about $4.70) for seniors. For additional information about the hot springs, visit the website

#1 Maligne Lake

The second-largest glacier-fed lake in the world, Maligne Lake enchants travelers with its brilliant turquoise waters and stunning skylines. Anyone who wants to trek to Maligne Lake should take the time to visit the lake's Spirit Island as well, which is one of the most famous views of the Canadian Rockies in the world. The lake sits east of the Icefields Parkway in the southern portion of the park, and travelers can access the area with their own car, in an excursion bus or even as part of a motorcycle tour. (To book a motorcycle tour, check out the Jasper Motorcycle Tours website.) Once at the lake, visitors can take advantage of a variety of tours and excursions, or just explore the area independently.

Past visitors recommended bringing a camera to capture photos of the beautiful scenery – many note there are numerous photo opportunities. However, recent travelers also warned that both the cruise and nonmotorized watercraft rentals come at a steep price.
