Waterton Lakes National Park

Recommended
The Waterton Lakes National Park, on the eastern face of the Rockies at the southwest corner of Alberta, is part of the International Peace Park created in 1932. The mountains sculpted by erosion and glaciation have formed sharp, jagged peaks, narrow ridges and meadows that buttress the rocky range. The souls of the First Nations Blackfoot bands can sometimes be felt wandering through this magical landscape.

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.
