Five Stunning & Historic Playgrounds
Alberta National Parks
Many of Canada’s most impressive and historic national parks are found in Alberta. The prairie province encompasses the first of Canada’s national parks to World Heritage Sites.
The Canadian National Parks system began in 1885 with Banff National Park – a stunning collection of lakes, trails, and peaks in western Alberta. Just north across the Icefields Parkway, Jasper National Park came in 1907 – and features more unmatched wildlife, lakes, and paths through the Canadian Rockies.
Waterton Lakes National Park came in 1895, found just north of Glacier National Park on Alberta’s southern border with Montana. Today, both parks create the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park – a World Heritage Site.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site in northern Alberta, Wood Buffalo National Park preserves everything from a massive herd of bison to a giant flock of whooping cranes, to the Peace-Athabasca Delta and even the largest beaver dam in the world. Established in 1922 at 45,000 square kilometres, this is Canada’s largest national park – and the world’s third.
All five parks offer incredible hiking, kayaking, biking, and wildlife viewing – plus plenty of snowy adventures for winter travelers. All you have to do is pick your park:
