Waterton Lakes National Park - Canada

Not all North American parks have a sister in another country, but such is the case with Waterton Lakes National Park in Canada. Read more...

Bordering Glacier National Park in the United States, Waterton Lakes provides a breathtaking extension to Glacier. Named for the Waterton Lakes, the deepest in the Canadian Rockies, Waterton Lakes National Park was dedicated to world peace in 1932. Straddling the continental divide in southern Alberta, the park is home to abundant flora and fauna and hosts many activities.
 
Visit nature’s meeting place, a true sight to behold where windy prairies flow into imposing mountains. A place of such natural beauty makes the appearance of industry unlikely, but Waterton is home to the first oil well in western Canada, and a monument located between Cameron Creek and the Akamina Parkway is there for the viewing. Enjoy the beauty of the lakes by kayaking, swimming, scuba diving to the wreckage of a sunken ship, fishing, or windsurfing. Give back to the park by volunteering with the protect ecosystems program, or take a Red Rock adventure tour. Perhaps one of the most interesting tours available is the Beauty and the Beasts scavenger hunt. Visitors can pick up a checklist at a ranger’s station and then find each of the park’s animals one by one.
