We have been to Athabasca Falls many times and it is always a treat to walk the trails. Standing on the bridge you have great views of the falls and it's great for picture taking. Despite the fact that there are signs warning people not to go over the fences there is always at least one fool who thinks the... More

One of natures beautiful works.The falls are ordinary but the view is amazing once the falls flow down and cut through a gorge. The nice part from the visitors view is that U get to walk through the rocks and see the falls from different points. A history of the falls is written at the various points too, which is... More

This was a great place to stop. As well as the falls it is worth the effort to walk down the the bottom where te water flows into the river and to the pond.

We stopped on our road trip from Calgary to Vancouver and although time was tight, we found the waterfalls would be worth adding to our next trip as a place to spend more time.

Cool, cloudy day, a bit of rain here and there..... We enjoyed every second of our visit. Make sure you look up and down, go down the stairs, go down to the river edge, go for a walk by the river. Explore! You will not be sorry. Safe, well paved walk ways. Hold on to the rail at the more... More

My husband and I from the UK have visited Canada several times over the years and I am always finding different things to comment on on Trip Advisor so this one is a long time coming. This is a stunning tourist spot, the first time we visited several years ago and on a revisit more recently. You cannot imagine the... More

Gorgeous views, easy access paths. This place is very tourist-y which is not my favourite thing but the views are too beautiful to pass up! Disappointing how some people disrespect nature and feel the need to litter. Well worth the visit, though.

Athabasca Falls are beautiful and an absolute must stop. I can't imagine coming all the way to Jasper and not stopping here. The Canadian Park Service did a great job designing and building the path system to accommodate all visitors no matter what their abilities. The signage was informative and easy to understand. Yes, I am sure that it can... More
