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.

Must stop to see it if driving along the Ice-fields Parkway.
