Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Beautiful natural falls amongst mountains and forests, lots of easy and moderate walking trails.
    The natural beauty of this area is outstanding. Highly recommend to visit if travelling through Jasper.

    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).

    We picked a clear day to take the skytram up Whistlers mountain. Fantastic views during the 7 minute journey and from the viewing platform. You can also climb to the summit if feeling fit. Recommended

    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.

    Visited: 02/06/2023.

    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.

    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.
