Swimming

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.

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.
