“Small falls”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

Hard pressed to call these falls. But I am spoiled by having visited Yosemite and Oregon's Multnomah Falls. Seemed awful small low in height.

“stunning views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

I walked both the Bow falls trail and the Tunnel Mountain round, frm both you get fantastic views Bow Falls is the easier walk, and when you feel you have earned it after admiring the falls you can walk up the steps behind to the Fairmont Hotel and get a meal or just coffee and cake - if you want, you can then carry on over the hill to the hot springs walking through the woods and catch the bus back into the town from there. A great afternoons entertainment, and free .

“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Nothing to dislike. Was amazing to see in a winter setting. I've been to Banff so many times and never made it to the falls - will definitely come back. Really would like to see in the summer.

“Great at any time of the year!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

In the past 18 months we have visited Bow Falls on three different occassions while visiting Banff. Once in October, once in January, and once in April. Each time was great and the falls were beautiful (for different reasons) at each time of year. The falls are an easy walk from Banff itself and from the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, and anyone visiting town should definitely stop here!
