One of many 'Must see's' in Jasper National park. The way the rageing river cuts through the narrow rock gorge to the calm emerald green lake below is a wonder to behold. The falls were partly frozen which added a new dimension. Add the stunning scenery and the picture is complete. We spent about an hour there as we happened... More

On our way home from an extra long weekend in Jasper we decided to stop and check it out. Was definitely worth the stop. Very impressive, a must see if you are in the area.

Take the road closest to Jasper rather than just turning off the Parkway. It will take you a little longer but there's lots to look at on the way. The falls are beautiful, take the time to see them from all the viewing areas....and don't forget your camera

Wonderful walk, short easy walk to the falls, you can choose to continue on, and walk the trail down to the lower river

We visited Athabasca Falls at the beginning of April 2015. It's easy to find as it's on Icefield Parkway Highway 93. All the attractions on this highway have clear sign but when we see the sign it's quite near such place. The waterfall was nice but if we get there in summer, it should be more beautiful. Recommend to visit.

Was easy to find, and lots of parking. Toilets were available. The walk was relatively flat with a few steps here and there. The view points were good. There are information boards along the route with good facts.
