Where are we going today?

Rugged, windswept mountains rise abruptly out of gentle prairie grassland in spectacular Waterton Lakes National Park. Here, several different ecological regions meet and interact in a landscape shaped by wind, fire, flooding, and abundant plants and wildlife. The park helps protect the unique and unusually diverse physical, biological and cultural resources found in the Crown of the Continent: one of the narrowest places in the Rocky Mountains. The highlight of Waterton's sparkling chain of lakes is the international Upper Waterton Lake, the deepest lake in the Canadian Rockies. In 1932, the park was joined with Montana's Glacier National Park to form the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park - a world first. Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park became a World Heritage site in 1995.

    Beautiful. Gorgeous. We had a great time at Red Rock Canyon, Bear Hump, and other great hikes and places in town. Great for families and kids.

    We have been to Waterton National Park many times over the years and each year we find something new. We have been on many hikes through the park each with its own special attributes. Tons of activities throughout the park and town site. Some of the most beautiful scenery in Alberta by far, and we have traveled all over the province. Can't wait to go back in a few weeks! If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would.

    Very biased. I live an hour from Waterton and visit regularly. A very special place, winter and all seasons. Have seen every kind of mammal the Rockies hold. Lots of deer and sheep in town much of the time. Many good hiking trails of all degrees of difficulty. Great Xcountry skiing, especially up the Akamina Parkway to Cameron lake.

    A super fun place. Another must visit place if you are in Western Canada and would like to see lakes, streams, waterfalls, grassland, hills and mountains together with a few deers, gazelles, grizzly brown beers, moose and hares around while you enjoy camping, hiking or just a Lake cruise
