Surprise Corner Reviews & Ratings

  • Parking will be your biggest problem here but aside from that when we come to banff we almost always come explore this area. You have to be a little adventurous to see the good stuff but you can get down to the river and see the falls from another side.

  • Lovely, even managed to catch a train going by. This is a very popular spot for landscape photographers and even trainspotters. Definitely was gorgeous in the winter.

  • A tiny corner that most people miss. You get an awesome view of the major hotels in the other side and get away from the hustle of Banff.

  • Magnificent view of Fairmont Banff Spring taken from Surprise Corner in December 2018

  • Great view. Would love to go back
