Every time we go to Jasper, we take a trip out to Athabasca Falls and it never gets old ... they are truly awesome! We usually drive the quieter highway from Jasper that can be found when you turn off to Edith Cavell. There are a couple of beautiful picnic spots along the way that are really quiet - we... More

Stunning waterfalls and would look fantastic in the winter when frozen. Well worth a visit. Would definitely recommend.

Great instruction on notice boards and easy to get round, walkways provided amazing views of the falls but don't miss the view of the lower canyon from the road but mind the traffic.

An easy walk to see beautiful falls high above gorges-takes about a half hour and right off the highway from Banff to jasper. Definitely include this on your trip!

A short 25 minute drive out of Jasper will bring you to these falls. Although not spectacular by Niagra scale they are well worth a visit especially on a dull or rainy day.

Stopped off here on the way to the glacier. The place was heaving so my advice is to go early as these falls are not to be missed. Around every corner is different view. Spectacular.

Very close to the waterfall. Impressive to see the power of the water. Impressive are the potholes created by the falls over centuries. Nice walking paths around the falls.

The color of the water and the depths of the canyon was breathtaking. There's lots of beautiful foliage and waterfalls.

Another natural attraction degraded by it's popularity. Roaring water, swirling azure pools and the occasional beer can. Close to the main road, and crisscrossed by boardwalks the accessibility is great but makes for it's on demise.
