“Spectacular!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

We've seen the falls in both summer and winter and its a very different experience. Either way, well worth the visit!

“Elk, Elk and more Elk”
5 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.
