Cave And Basin National Historic Site2162 Votes Currently Open
Not only is the Cave and Basic site a natural phenomenon in itself, it’s also a vital part of the country’s history. It was here, right amidst these hot springs that the National Parks System of Canada was born, in 1885. After three railway workers discovered this cave and its commercial potential, the government decided to intervene and declared it a historic site, making it both open to public and preservation.
Today, you can see the very same cave the three workers did, although you can’t swim here anymore. The site has been transformed into a museum which displays restored buildings, an outdoor hot springs bath and pool and interactive displays on the National Parks of Canada make for a great visit.
