The Athabasca falls are an imprescindible stop in your way from Jasper to Lake Louise and viceversa. You can shot a good pictures to the falls as well as the small canyon.

“Nature at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

A must do if you are in the Jasper area a beautiful and poerful waterfall that really makes you feel alive. There are fantastic view points to allow to watch and be amazed by the power and quantity of water bursting through the rock. If you take a walk down the canyon to the end of the falls you get a great view into the canyon which has been carved over the millenia. A must see.

“Nature's Power”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

This is a must stop. Liked this way better than the icefields. If you can only do one stop, do this one. You really get a great feel for what nature can do and there are so many great spots for creative pictures. Our best pictures of the whole trip came from this location.
