Bow Falls Viewpoint, located in the picturesque city of Banff, is a natural spectacle that offers breathtaking views of the Bow River cascading over a series of small waterfalls. The viewpoint is easily accessible and provides a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains, the rushing river, and the stunning falls. It’s a perfect spot for photography enthusiasts, nature lovers, and anyone looking to soak in the serene beauty of Banff.

While visiting Bow Falls Viewpoint, one of the main attractions is the Bow Falls themselves. The sight of the turquoise water tumbling over the rocks is truly mesmerizing. Another must-see is the historic Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, often referred to as the “Castle in the Rockies”, which can be seen from the viewpoint. The combination of the natural beauty of the falls and the architectural elegance of the hotel makes for a truly unique and unforgettable experience.

Plan your visit

  1. Be sure to bring a camera to capture the stunning views of Bow Falls and the surrounding mountains!
  2. Wear appropriate clothing for mountain weather conditions - dress in layers, as temperatures can change quickly at higher altitudes.
  3. Keep an eye out for various wildlife that may be passing through the area - elk, deer, moose, bighorn sheep and more can often be seen in this region!
  4. Respect any barriers or signs that may be posted in order to protect the natural landscape and its inhabitants from human interference or disturbance. 5 Be aware of your footing while walking around; some areas may become slippery due to melting snow or ice during warmer months.
