They are pretty awesome

Very fun place to take the kids to because it's loud and kids love waterfalls. Beautiful surrounding, well worth the stop.

This is an often missed gem. I got the very best photos I have ever taken of waterfalls. You can get so close to this beautiful waterfall. Starting off flat at the top, you can walk down the stone steps, following the path that the force of the water has carved out over time. Many different vantage points for great... More

Tours are closed to the falls in the winter, but hubby & I ventured out ourselves. Super easy to get to, 5 min walk from road, and totally worth it! Even when frozen they are still breathtaking.

Awesome, try to check it out during the off season before june and after sept to avoid the large crowds and buses! Great place to see bears. Make sure you check the whole place out not just the first 5 minutes.

another set of falls worth stopping for, they aren't too far off the highway and worth the few minutes for a walk around and experiencing

This was our last stop before we went directly into Jasper for dinner. After all the amazing beauty of the Icefield Parkway, this powerful waterfall was well worth the 30 minutes of parking and walk to the outlook and bridge across the waterfall. It is a must stop and see - really not a lot of time needed to see... More

We had a great time at the falls. It was a great stop after a long day of driving through the mountains. We walked around for an hour. I have never seen falls that big before. My teenagers enjoyed it too.

impressive falls and canyon. We try to take these in everytime we travel on 'The Icefields Parkway'. Also take in the Mountain Goat look out and Sunwapta Falls Lodge with a very good dining area. We also took in the Jasper Skywalk, absolutely awesome engineering.
