  • Great falls only an hour away from Vancouver. You should come here early to beat the rush, as there is very limited parking available. Also there is a short 5 min trail that takes you to the Sea to Sky Gondola, so you don't have to move you car to that parking lot (also very limited spots, gets really full during holidays etc). Plan ahead and arrive early!
  • IT IS SO INCREDIBLE! Too beautiful for words. The highway to here reminds us why Earth is the best place in the Galaxy. The view is extremely breathtaking!
  • View from the lower viewing area is a short walk from the parking lot, which is free and right off the highway. If you are up for it, there is an upper viewing area which is a short but aggressive elevation climb. Lots of well maintained stairs, the reward was worth it. This is an impressive waterfall.
  • Beatiful falls near the Sea To Sky Gondola. Stunning view you can see already from the highway!
  • An easy walk to a spectacular view of the falls. June 2017, the water flow from rains and early snow melt made for a breath-taking sight.
