Waterfall Hikes

Exploring the majestic waterfalls of Banff and Lake Louise is a must-do activity. In the heat of summer, mist from the roaring falls offers a refreshing cool down after a hike on a warm day. Come wintertime, the falls transform into breathtaking cascades of ice, frozen in time. With their everchanging nature promising a unique experience in every season, visiting one of the many waterfalls in Banff National Park is sure to deliver a captivating experience year-round.
