Athabasca Falls Tours

4 reviews
Athabasca Falls
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. 
Address: Highway 93A, Jasper National Park, Jasper, Alberta, Canada, Canada
Admission: Adults: $9.80; Children: $4.90

NEW TO VIATOR

Mount Isa City Tour (2 hrs)

Our detailed interpretive tour of this amazing outback city starts with it's discovery by John Campbell Miles in the early twenties and continues along to the present day. We look at the natural fauna of the area and traditional dwellings. We take a sneaky look at the mine and it's processes including the original copper open cut before getting a photo opportunity in front of the lead smelter and bore mill. We visit Mount Isa's train station only metres from the mine and the end of the line for "Progress and Prosper" as the rail line extension to Darwin never eventuated. Before heading back to Outback at Isa we visit Buchanan Park home to Mount Isa's world famous Rodeo, the biggest Rodeo in the southern hemisphere.
