We almost didn't go here but Mt. Edith Cavell kept drawing me closer-so massive! Took the hike from the parking lot then after a kilometer or so you get the most amazing view of a glacial lake with a huge glacier above it, another glacier (Angel) high above you, with multiple waterfalls flowing down the mountain..if you are in Jasper...

Another of the Rockies hidden gems.There have been changes to the Glacier since our last visit. The walk is a lot shorter than it used to be due ground movement and the small lake and ice caves have disappeared leaving a mass of ice. There were many small avalanches while we were there, which were fun to watch but probably... More

This was my second trip to Angel Glacier. The Angel Glacier flows down the north face of Mount Edith Cavell in Jasper National Park, Canada. It's about 14 Kms from the highway 93A. We could not get down to the Cavell pond as it was out of bounds owing to a recent flood in this area. After a 700 meters... More

I thought this was a really interesting place. Beautiful and fascinating at the same time. My kids hiked the lower part and found it to be easy.

This is a must see. What an amazing experience. You get to really see how the lakes are made. There is a short up hill walk but it is worth it. There were also rangers there to answer questions. Great experience.

I didn't know what to expect when I started walking from the car park to the glacier. There are 2 walks: a shorter one that stays closer to the glacier and a longer one that goes up to the top of the mountain opposite the glacier. The views from up there are amazing and, since it's quite steep you don't... More

Canada really knows how to nature! This is a pretty easily accessible glacier to get up close to. I reccommed going outside of regular tourist hours or you will miss out on the peace and serenity such a place has to offer.

My wife does most of the research on our trips and I like to be surprised with what she suggests. Visiting Angel Glacier was one of our highlights in the Canadian Rockies! The view of Angel Glacier and Cavell Lake is awe inspiring! We also had several hours to further enjoy the area by hiking and enjoying other views of... More

It takes a while to walk to the viewpoint but its well worth it. I really enjoyed the view of the glacier which really does have an angel shape. Good information panels are available at the viewpoint.
