The Takakkaw Falls are formed by the melting water of the glacier behind the mountain with the same name. The water falls through a hole in the rocks from a height of 254 meters.

After driving on Icefields Parkway, the Travelling-along-Rivers team continued the journey through Canada via a two-day train journey with Rocky Mountaineer which took them from Calgary to Vancouver.
