Okay, so we’ve all heard of Banff National Park, right? The picturesque, too-good-to-be-true scenic bombshell that operates as one of the most convincing parts in getting tourists to visit Canada. From the soaring mountains to the turquoise water of nearby Lake Louise, Banff is a significant addition to the country's beauty.\nAlthough the surface of the national park is what draws people in, many don’t know that there is an even more Insta-worthy experience far below the popular landmarks — the Cave and Basin Historic Site.\nView this post on Instagram Cave and Basin National Historic Site, where the hot springs began!

After three railway workers stumbled into the cave in 1883, the area has been one of Alberta’s — and Canada’s — best kept secrets.\nA small yet informative museum, the hot springs are kind of essential to the whole Banff National Park system existing. Once you make your way through the short tunnel to the cavern, you will learn more about the history of the park while also having the pleasure of experiencing a sulphur scent and viewing the turquoise water.\nView this post on Instagram The Cave and Basin in Banff National Park!
