The Athabasca Falls are a great place to stop and stretch your legs when travelling Hwy 93. The falls are located about 32 Km (give or take) south of Jasper. The walking trails are pretty good but make sure to keep everyone on the trails and eye on the kids (of all ages). Way to many people get carried away... More

These are well worth a visit and are quite spectacular with various different view points so you are best to spend the time moving from one to another to get different views of the falls and to led the crowds move on. Recommended and its free.

We enjoyed our trip to these falls. The water comes from an attractive lake and is forced over the falls with a good deal of momentum. There's a reasonable amount of noise and a good deal of spray and some damp paths that can be a bit slippery. You can view the falls from a number of locations but, like... More

This is an excellent point of interest along the Icefields Parkway. They have done an excellent job of giving multiple viewpoints for the falls and canyon. Well worth the stop. We spent about 45-60 minutes here.

An easy pull off from the highway. Ample parking. Stunning view of the falls. Drawback...the usual long drop toilet.

Really lovely place to visit - the falls are quite impressive with lots of spray and you can cross over and see them from both sides, which is nice. We didn't walk further down the creek as we were on a tour and only had a short amount of time.

This is a very popular location so you would be wise to arrive early or very late. I'm talking theme park crowds. The falls area is truly spectacular with multiple viewpoints to view different parts of the falls from every possible angle. Some of the viewpoints are wheelchair accessible but others require negotiating many and sometimes narrow steps. The main... More

To find these falls, you drive south of Jasper and then take a narrow road for about 30 km. It isn't the best road, but the falls are truly amazing. The parking lot is huge. There are outhouses in the parking lot. The falls are a short walk from the parking lot. The sound of the rushing water is amazing.... More
