Swimming in Jasper National Park

Jasper Aquatic cen­tre has an indoor pool where you can swim indoors. Miette Hot Springs has var­i­ous pools, but really made for swim­ming, more like soak­ing. If you have a hearty soul, you can just about swim on any lakes and rivers in Jasper National Park.

Public swim areas

Swim­ming is great to keep in shape and also for sur­vival in Jasper. Spe­cially when you have to ford a river to a des­ti­na­tion or work in the envi­ron­ment like river guid­ing or just play­ing in the water. Lakes and rivers are gen­er­ally very cold in Jasper because most of them are glacial fed.

The steam, the warmth, the sooth­ing mineral-rich waters hid­den within the beau­ti­ful Fid­dle Val­ley lured bathers at the turn of the cen­tury. They made the stren­u­ous 17 kilo­me­tre trip by foot or horse­back for the plea­sure of a soak. That ardu­ous jour­ney of yes­ter­year is today’s pleas­ant and mem­o­rable trip up a wind­ing road with spec­tac­u­lar views.
