Panther Falls (& Bridal Veil Falls) – Icefields Parkway

Panther Falls (& Bridal Veil Falls) – Icefields Parkway

Panther Falls is large waterfall cascading into an energetic plunge that is possible to get right up close to. It’s incredible and very wet! You can’t see this waterfall from the road, and it is not listed on most maps/brochures for the Icefields Parkway.
