TOP 3 WATERFALLS in CANADA
2014 Traveler’s Choice Awards
Top 3 Waterfalls Western / Northern Canada
Western / Northern Canada Waterfalls – Anyone who has followed us through the years here at eh Canada Travel & Adventure knows, full well, we enjoy waterfalling.
The activity of waterfalling is a term we use to describe the art of seeking out waterfalls via participating in adventures like hiking, backpacking, kayaking, canoeing, boating, sailing and mountain biking.
Canada is fortunate enough to have a wide selection of waterfalls to explore. Some falls are hard to access and require much effort to view… while others are developed falls often easily accessed by highways and paved walkways.
The developed waterfalls in Canada are often on display as centre pieces within community, provincial or national parks. These falls tend to be surrounded by amenities like viewpoints, day use picnic sites, hiking trails, washrooms and parking lots. The more developed waterfall parks can include sandy beaches, concession stands, campgrounds, playgrounds and equipment rentals.
The remote, hard to access, waterfalls are bare bones. The only requirement for viewing these remote backcountry falls, is effort whether it being a long hike, paddle or ride. These destinations let the waterfalls do all the entertaining.

Revelstoke, BC, Canada
|Begbie Falls is located south of the community of Revelstoke, BC. The popular falls are tucked away in the forest canopy on the shores of Upper Arrow Lake at the mouth of Begbie Creek. The falls are best accessed by a hiking trail and/or by canoe or kayak. The main hiking route to Begbie Falls follows a short 10 – 20 minute hiking trail leading downhill from the parking lot of the Begbie Falls Recreation Site. The short hiking trail leading downhill from the parking lot is full of twists and turns eventually connecting to a series of wooden stairs leading to a viewing platform located at the base of the falls. The trail is steep and slippery. The mist from the falls is magical and the roar is loud. (read more)|
