Cave and Basin National Historic Site

Hotels near Cave and Basin National Historic Site, Banff, Canada .

Cave and Basin National Historic Site of Canada is considered the birthplace of the National Park System of Canada. Mineral springs found inside the cave in 1885 inspired government officials to begin the park system starting from this natural phenomenon. Located in the Rocky Mountain region of Alberta in the city of Banff and part of the Banff National Park, the Cave and Basin was declared a National Historic Site in 1981. Sulphurous hot springs continue to remain one of the key attractions around Banff. Visitors can check the basin and its mineral pool before looking at exhibits on the 2nd floor of the bathing area. Along the Discovery Boardwalk Trail, the old hotel and smaller springs are visible. The wetlands visible along the Marsh Boardwalk Trail afford visitors a peek at local fish and wildlife. Panels along the walls detail World War I immigrant internment camps. The Sundance Trail and Marsh Loop are two great trails for walking in warm months or snowshoe expeditions in winter months. In summer (May 15 to September 30), the Cave and Basin is open from 9 am to 6 pm. In winter months the hours are 11 am to 4 pm Monday to Friday and 9:30-5:00 on Saturday and Sunday. Visitors are charged the general national park fees of $3.90 for adults, $3.40 for seniors and $1.70 for children aged 6 to 17. Group prices are available.

Nearby accommodations include A Banff Boutique Inn - Pension Tannenhof, Banff Y Mountain Lodge, the Mount Royal Hotel Banff (on Banff Road), the Fairmont Banff Springs and the Rimrock Resort Hotel on Mountain Avenue.
