Waterton Lakes National Park

The “Canadian Side” of Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park is the north side of Glacier National Park. Tucked into the Rocky Mountains at the southern end of Alberta, this park is stuffed to the brim with exemplary scenery — and it isn’t just limited to its namesake lakes. Waterfalls, dense forests, wildflowers, red rock canyons, and the world-famous Crypt Lake hike all vie for attention in this breathtaking environment.
