Travelling through the parks of Canada: extravagant grandeur

With almost 10 million km2, more than 18 times the size of France, Canada is the second largest country in the world after Russia. A country where space seems infinite, like national parks. Created by the government, and managed by Parcs Canada, some forty marine areas, reserves and national parks aim to protect the diversity of Canada’s natural wilderness. We have found three that are well worth a visit.
