Waterfall

Watching the water rush around the perfectly placed island and crash down the falls just downstream is an experience you'll never forget.

Located in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Sunwapta is a short drive along the Icefields Parkway to the Rocky Mountain Lodge. You can park at the lodge and take a short walk out to the falls. This stunning waterfall lunges about 18.5 meters (60 feet) to the water below.

Grab your camera or phone and take some amazing shots!

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

Go a little further

When you get there you might see a bridge with a ton of people taking photos, but go a little further. You can get some isolation/different angles if you venture a little past that.

Perfection

This is an easy walk to an amazing view. Definitely worth a stop along the Icefields Parkway. Just be aware that Tiffany is a pro, and it can be dangerous to get to where she is in these photos. The current is strong, and you're very close to the edge. Come in the early morning for some beautiful light.

One of my favourite easy falls to check out in Jasper

It is a super short walk to get to the bridge to check out these falls. They are stunning in spring, winter, summer and fall, just like all of Jasper is! Check it out if you get the chance.
