    Not a bad walk to see these Falls. Fantastically powerful and set with a stunning backdrop of mountains. Stunning to see the falls where the Glacier runs off from and beautiful blue waters. Nice little place to have a break from driving for some lovely views.
    If you are able to explore and follow the step trails (can be steep, be careful) and follow the falls to the massive lake it flows into. The entire area is beautiful.

    Includes lots of stairs so most of it in not accessible for wheelchairs.

    Did the 1st to 5th bridge walk. The route through the canyon and along the river is stunning. It is hilly and full of steps which are fine for the average walker.

    230 km of stunning views. End of April, so mixed weather and still a lot of snow but also relatively quiet. Magnificent. Take your time. Do not rush.

    Ben did a awesome job driving us to the glacier. I would recommend, it was once in a life time experience. It was much better then even expected. Everyone working here was so kind.

    We visited Maligne Lake in May 2016 and did the Spirit Island cruise. This time, we popped over to see what, if anything, had changed and to grab some lunch.

    Both times we have visited we have been blessed with wildlife (bears in 2016 and elk in July 2023).

    We popped into the main café to find that it was very expensive. A basic sandwich had a cost of $17.50. So we gave it a miss and walked over to the Waffle Hut instead (see other review) and this was much better value.

    We took some pictures of the area and had to make a quick dash to shelter when a thunderstorm passed through. Once it had cleared, we retook the photos as blue skies appeared. It was an afternoon of two halves.

    The journey to the Lake is well worth it but I feel it has become over touristy (along with most of the Rockies now).

    Well worth a stop if driving, catch your breath and enjoy the views. We visited on a sunny day and early in the morning (around 7am). Really peaceful to hear the birds singing, the mist floating across the lakes surfaces, and just enjoy the mountain views.

    Both Pyramid and Patricia were beautiful.

    Be careful not to interrupt wildlife at Pyramid Lake, there is a small island you can walk to, when we arrived first thing there was a large Elk grazing. It was lovely to watch until she swam away.

    The best views from top of the world (or so it seems)
    We were here when the snow was still on the summit, so hiking was tricky.
    The views were incredible, even on a semi rainy day. We had lunch at the cafe at the top, and it was tasty. It wasn't terribly busy, so they were very nice about the length of the visit ( the cable car can only accommodate a certain number)

    This was one of several “quick & easy hikes” (oxymoron) we did during our visit to the Canadian Rockies this Fall. Totally worth it. Highly recommend visiting the stream/pond area that’s on a short side road you drive past on the way in/out of the Glacier area.

    It’s been maybe 50 years since I’ve been to a planetarium. Very enjoyable way to spend an hour. Guide was excellent and very upbeat.

    We did the Maligne Lake and Spirit Island boat cruise. The scenery is so beautiful it looks exactly like the postcards. The journey to and from Spirit Island is made even better by the commentary by Connor and the expertise of the Captain Brooke. Would do this cruise again

    This was one of my favourite views. You can see 3 glaciers at once and the chance to see calving as the one lake by the glacier has small ice bergs in it. It is about a 30 minute drive up and you can only do it in a vehicle that doesn’t have trailer because the roads are very windy. It is a short uphill hike but most of it is paved. There are also some nice views on the way

    There are lots of beautiful falls and canyons along the Icefields Parkway. The Sunwapta Falls were our last stop after a long day of sightseeing on the parkway. We were fortunate to find the falls nearly empty. Most visitors make a quick stop a the upper falls. There is also a longer hike of about two miles round trip to the lower falls. If you have the time, it is a nice quiet hike. The lower falls are not as impressive as the upper falls.
