Located less than 3 hours south of Calgary’s city centre, this sunny day oasis makes for the perfect day trip, overnight staycation and bucket list item for explorers, adventures and thrill seekers.

With crystal clear water and cliffside viewpoints, this mountain destination is not only a beautiful place to enjoy a picnic, but it also has a campground where guests can fall asleep to the sound of the falls nearby.

Though you’ll have to bring your own drinking water if you’re staying overnight, firepits are available and the quiet is unmatched – but that doesn’t mean it’s boring!

From hiking and bird watching to swimming and fishing this unique spot is a dream, but be warned – the water is incredibly cold!
