Athabasca Falls

Point Of Interest

4.6 from 16 users


The 23-metre Athabasca Falls is not very high by Canadian Rockies standards, but the size of the river makes it one of the most powerful falls to be found in the mountain national parks. Pouring over a layer of hard quartzite, the falls have cut into the softer limestone beneath, carving intricate features, including potholes and a short canyon. There are a number of platforms and walkways where you can safely view and photograph the falls. No camping or overnight parking allowed.

Beautiful falls through a stunning canyon, lots of steps but well worth it :) there is a pay phone in the car park and several toilets, very busy spot.



Absolutely amazing! Wonderful waterfall and a beautiful canyon!



Not even worth stopping if you have ever seen a waterfall. Good anthropology sightseeing tho.
