Located in the Yoho National Park, Takakkaw Falls is one of Canada’s highest waterfalls, with a jaw-dropping free fall of 833 feet. The name Takakkaw means “it is magnificent” in the indigenous language of Cree, and once you’ve visited the falls you’ll understand why.
The Takakkaw Falls are fed by the Daly Glacier, which is part of the Waputik Icefield. Late spring, when the snow and ice begin to melt, is a particularly good time to visit – the meltwater adds to the power of the falls, making them an even more spectacular sight. The Takakkaw Falls are visible for most of the walk from the car park, which is almost entirely paved, making it accessible to most visitors.
An additional short walk goes to an alternative viewpoint if you want to see more. For the more adventurous visitor there are some spectacular hikes to Laughing Falls, Twin Falls, Yoho Pass and Little Yoho Valley that start from here. Be sure to come prepared though as you’ll be heading out into the wilderness of the Canadian Rockies.
For convenient Takakkaw Falls accommodation, try looking in the small village of Field in the Yoho National Park. This small mountain community has several cosy lodges to choose from. There is a wider choice of hotels and other places to stay in Lake Louise, which is in the nearby Banff National Park.
The town of Banff has an excellent selection of hotels, lodges, inns and hostels and is around 1.5 hours away from Field by road. To get to the Takakkaw Falls from Field take the Yoho Valley Road and after eight miles look out for the Takakkaw Falls car park. The road is open from mid-June to mid-October but is closed in winter.
Whether you’re staying in Banff National Park or in Field, a visit to the beautiful, accessible Takakkaw Falls will be a highlight of your Canadian Rockies holiday.
