Athabasca Falls Jasper National Park waterfall river Alberta Canada


Location: Jasper National Park. Alberta. Canada


Athabasca Falls is a waterfall in Jasper National Park on the upper Athabasca River. It's not really famous for its height (24 m, 80 ft) or its width (18 m, 60 ft), but for the large amount of water that carries.

This is one of the best stops along the Icefields Parkway and also one of the most popular in the park because it is easily accessible. As usual, to avoid crowds I recommend visiting the falls in the early morning hours.
