Tumbling down from the heights of the Canadian Rockies, the powerful waters of Sunwapta Falls create a mesmerising view. Originating from the Athabasca Glacier, the two falls have a drop of 18 m (60 ft), their frothy white waters crashing down the forests of Jasper National Park. You'll find the falls easy to get to with peaceful surroundings, so take a wander to the soundtrack of the roaring falls and stand in awe at nature's power.

Sunwapta Falls Reviews
It's a short walk from the parking area to take in the falls surrounded by stunning nature. It was far less busy than many of the other stops along the Icefields Parkway. If you can, avoid parking... more »
54 kkm south of Japer. Lost of parking space and a short walk to the falls. Sunwapta means roring river. I loved this place even more than Athabasca Falls and there were less people here. If you go... more »
Its crowded with tourist but still worth a visit. Amazing waterfalls and rock formation. No entrance fee and you can enjoy the short walk. The view is awesome. Highly recommended to visit this place.
Sunwapta Falls are very beautiful and impressive waterfalls in Jasper/Banff National Park closer to Jasper. The water comes roaring down the falls to pass raging at the bottom of a narrow rocky path going under pedestrians bridge going further in its high walled rocky way. Very beautiful. Must stop to see it if driving along the Ice-fields Parkway.
