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.
Get some cultural insight at Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump World Heritage Site and Remington Carriage Museum. Take a break from the city and head to Red Rock Canyon and Waterton Shoreline Cruise Co.. Take a break from Waterton Lakes National Park with a short trip to Cardston Alberta Temple in Cardston, about 46 minutes away. There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Waterton Village, explore the activities along Upper Waterton Lake, take in the dramatic scenery at Blakiston Falls, and trek along Bertha Falls.
