Waterton Lakes National Park is a rare gem tucked into the south-western corner of Alberta.
In this breathtaking part of the world the majestic Rocky Mountains rise suddenly out of the rolling prairies, an ancient landscape where ice-age glaciers have carved out valleys now filled by crystal-clear lakes.
Fauna and flora
To the south, the park borders Glacier National Park in Montana and together they make up the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, the first of its kind in the world. What makes Waterton Park unique is its blend of unusual geology, a mild climate, rare wild flowers, and an abundance of wildlife.
