  • You will find your way from Vancouver to Whistler, and on the same road, a little before reaching the Peak to Peak Funicular. You Won't spend a lot of time and It can be a break in your drive. A few yards from the parking lot.

  • We visited also the Alexander falls during a jeep ride. Weather fit and so we could make beautiful pictures. Is worth a visit.

  • Waterfall a little lost to the Olympic site, she was impressed by the beauty of its flow falling in stair. Like any waterfall beauty is measured by its flow. Big parking place right in front of. Waterfall to see.

  • Gorgeous falls with easy (winter) access to the viewpoint, access to the base of the falls is a little steeper and requires either good footwear or even snowshoes if there's recent snow. Takes about 25 minutes driving from Whistler village
  • Alexander Falls is a waterfall on Madeley Creek, a tributary of Callaghan Creek in the Callaghan Valley area of the Sea to Sky Country of southwestern British Columbia, Canada Oh my God this is a beautiful falls I didn't know existed. If you're in Callaghan Valley take a stop in and enjoy the view. The falls are about 50m tall...
  • Alexander Falls was flowing super hard after days of heavy rain and she was spectacular to see! It's a nice drive up the Callaghan Valley Rd to get there. If you love waterfalls, go see this one!
  • We went in February the snow was fresh, the trails are well marked and the falls were breathtaking, pictures do not do it justice you need to see it for yourself.
  • This place was a nice10k drive up the Callaghan Valley Road to get to Alexander Falls on the left just before the Olympic winter venue park entrance. This road is well posted, on the left hand side, before you get to Whistler when coming from Vancouver, it's a nice casual drive. Once there you will find lots of parking and a small but nice picnic place, Several tables provided to have a picnic. We didn't see any bears or any sign of them other than lots of warnings. Fantastic Valley that you drive through with lots of trees and fantastic views. It's a lonely drive we only saw three vehicles passing us going up and four coming down.
