“A must stop in Banff”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

An amazing rush of water. It is quite spectacular in the winter as well with certain parts of the falls frozen over. Take the time to park an walk around and up to the Banff Springs. For a quick bit of Elk Spotting, just drive across the little bridge and take a cruise through the golf course.

“Stunning”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

My husband and I have been lucky enough to visit Canada three times over the past 8 years or so, twice included Alberta and British Columbia. If anyone is thinking of going please do, it is a stunning country with some outstanding views and scenery. Drive the Ice Fields Parkway which takes you through some of the most wonderful scenery you can imagine, there really are views in Canada that are "jaw dropping".

“Bring a picnic and a camera”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

Bow Falls is a big beautiful bit of nature unique to this place. Walk along the trail to view the falls from the top, or head towards the golf course to see more of the Bow River. Bring your camera and get a picture. Bring a picnic or wander up to Waldhaus in the late afternoon/evening for a pint.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

Take time to wander into the valley and view bow falls absolutely beautiful, providing stunning views of the falls, mountains, and the Bow river. Take in the fresh crisp air coming off the falls and dip your feet in the river on a hot summer day

“Beautiful mountains and air quality”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

Must go destination. We went in April and part of the lake was still frozen, therefore, we were able to walk right out to the middle of the lake.
