Stopped off at the Athabasca falls on my tour through Jasper. Visited here a few times and keep on visiting every time I do. If you haven't seen it definitely worth visiting and not much walking to see the falls and get up close and personal and feel the mist on your face.

Simply amazing frozen falls (tho not completely). Well worth the stop as the winter falls are stunning ice formations.

Had a great time visiting is July. Lots of people but the Falls are worth it. Would recommend going all the way down to the outlet, beautiful caverns to walk through.

This was my second trip to the falls in winter and it didn't seem to be as icy as it was the last time. The stairs to the lower falls was roped off with a DO NOT ENTER sign. A beautiful sight and well worth visitng

Came across this along ice field parkway . Parking available and just a short walk to the falls lookouts. Quite cool around the falls, needed a jumper. Just an amazing view of the water rushing down and seeing the rocks worn away from the force of the water over all the years. Glad we stopped for a look!

Definitely a must see if you are in the area, there is something beautiful about walking around the falls and standing listening to the water running by.

Driving between Calgary to Jasper to Vancouver gives you many great opportunities to see the best Canada has to offer and it places like this that take your breath away. It's a beautiful area and the walk was easy and I'm glad i made the stop to fo it.

Good for a quick spot of sight seeing near Jasper, cool to note that from here water flows to the Arctic, not the Pacific anymore!
