“The roar of water”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

The loud roar and clouds of mist coming from the falls emphasizes how much power is being corralled by the rocks around these falls. Don't miss this attraction.

“Perfect Close Up”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

This waterfall is one of the best places for a close up of falls. With the Rocky Mountains topping it, the scene is one of a kind. Between the trees the mountains and the falls appear as if they are a natural camera view. This is the second time for me to see it and never stopped being impressed.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Athabasca Falls gives more bank for the buck than most other waterfall sites. It is easily accessible from the well-maintained parking lot. It is best viewed in the Fall, when there are far fewer tourists. Even so, the path is well marked with interpretive signs and the falls are amazing as they plunge over rocks and course through a steep canyon.

“Athabasca Falls”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Beautiful, powerful - lots of energy!! We were very close to the falls - closer than you can get at Niagara. You really get the sense of the power because of the closeness. Worth seeing!!!
