Athabasca Falls Tours

Proving that it’s force and not size that matters, Athabasca Falls is a mere 75.5 foot (23 m) tall waterfall in Jasper National Park on the upper Athabasca River just west of the Icefields Parkway. The largest waterfall by volume in Jasper National Park, water cascades over the falls almost constantly, even on cold mornings when river levels are at their lowest. 

Thundering through a narrow gorge, Athabasca Falls has both smoothed the rock walls it travels past and potholed them with the sand and rock it carries. It’s easy to admire Athabasca Falls from various viewing platforms and walking trails around the falls. Considered a Class 5 waterfall, Athabasca has a drop of 80 ft (24 m) and a width of 60 ft (18m).

Practical Info

Athabasca Falls is located approximately 18.6 miles (30 km) south of Jasper; park at the Athabasca Falls parking lot on Highway 93A. There are several lookouts and a paved trail that leads to other lookouts, but be sure to stay on the path and inside of the railing as the rocks can be extremely slippery—several people have fallen to their deaths.
