Reviewed 29 January 2012

Wonderful and breath taking, we usually see these falls frozen in the January ski trip, but visited Banff in the summer and wow how different the falls are.

“White water spray from cold fresh moutain”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

A one hour stop where you explore the falls from many different vantage points. You can see the entrance from the Banff Jasper Highway near the park gates. A nice medium hike around with great information signs and good Parks Canada bathrooms.

“Stunning”
Reviewed 23 January 2012

These falls are so beautiful. It was cold (Fall) but worth getting cold for and having a look around. We were on a Brewster tour and the guide gave us lots of hisotry as well which was great.

“Lovely and crowded”
Reviewed 20 January 2012

A victim of its own beauty. By the time you've found parking, jostled with the tour bus crowds, filed single-file down the paths, and waited in line to take an unobstructed photo, you'll feel like you stopped at a Wal-Mart.
