“Elk, Elk and more Elk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

A visit to Bow falls was absolutely gorgeous and peaceful....when we got back in our car, we traveled on through the golf course where we experienced something I will never forget. As we drove through with our windows open, and admiring the amazing scenery, we caught the sounds of elk bugling all around us. We pulled over near a dried up stream and sat in awe as a bull elk crossed in front of us. Absolutely a breathtaking moment, and one my husband and I will never forget.

“Another must visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

One of many places in Banff when visiting that you must go experience. Perfect for picture taking or walking the short trails. Awesome rear view of the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel.

“Beautiful in any season!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

No trip to Banff is complete without visiting Bow Falls, no matter the season. If the falls are frozen, it is beautiful, if they are running, it is beautiful. A great spot to take pictures! You can walk on the trail along the south bank of the Bow River or drive to the parking lot below the Banff Springs Hotel for a spectacular view. A MUST see on every trip we take to Banff.

“Nice scenery.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Great for pictures and a hike. There is tobagganing close by behind the Banff Springs. Just go up the road to the stairs and head down.
