Canyons · Bodies of Water · Hiking Trails
Established in the 1890s and named after a celebrated Victorian naturalist, Waterton Lakes National Park encompasses a variety of landscapes that include mountains, freshwater wetlands, prairie grasslands, aspen forests, and lakes. In an area protected as a World Heritage Site, a vacation in Waterton Lakes National Park allows you to discover a mix of wildlife sharing a space of about 500 sq km (200 sq mi). Animals that find shelter in this park include white-tailed deer, mule deer, mountain goats, moose, grizzly bears, coyotes, and bighorn sheep. Most people come here to hike the nature trails, but you can also spend part of your holiday taking scenic cruises on Upper Waterton Lake.
