“Brill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Stunning place to visit, I was here during that start of thaw and water gushing over the falls. Area is very safe and has good walking paths.

“Stunning falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

The whole view of seeing the falls, an extended lake with the backdrop of snow capped mountains was stunning, especially to a 'Brit'.

“Low water conditions, unique water flows, spectacular scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

The water flow was low, fingers of water running down the falls. Situated behind the Banff Springs Fairmont Hotel. A must see if in Banff. Spectacular views of the falls, downstream river, and mountains in the background!

“Amazing”

Amazing waterfalls! Nice to go in Summer time where waters are free flowing. Nothing much to do here except taking pictures.
