Three Canadian Must-Sees Of All National Parks

Oct 20, 2007
Not all national parks in Canada are cut from the same cloth. They are as diverse as the country is wide. From the east coast of Newfoundland to the farthest reaches of the Northwest Territories, you will find something for every taste and budget. There are too many to name all national parks in Canada but below are three popular ones you shouldn't miss.

Cape Breton Highlands, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia

Driving along the Cabot Trail that skirts the rocky cliffs of the northern coast of Cape Breton, you feel like you stepped out of North America and into the Scottish Highlands. What you have to look forward to in this Canadian national park are breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean, rolling green mountains, steep roads, deep valleys, and enough scenery to fill a photo album (or your digital memory card).

The Cape Breton Highlands are also home to several family-friendly trails and beaches, and is the location of the best public golf course in Canada, the Highland Links.

Of all national parks, the Cape Breton Highlands National Park should be seen to be appreciated. Please visit your national parks website for more information or check out the Parks Canada website.

Banff National Park, Banff, Alberta

Nestled in the Rocky Mountains along the border of Alberta and British Columbia just an hour and a half-drive from Calgary, you will find the first Canadian national park and the third of all national parks worldwide ever established.

This 6641 square kilometer (2564 square mile) park boasts some of the most impressive peaks of the Rockies (Castle Mountain), year-round refreshing hot springs, world class downhill skiing (Lake Louise), renowned glaciers (Columbia Icefield), and wildlife. This popular park is a must-see destination for anyone who enjoys skiing, hiking, or just relaxing.

All national parks in this area of Canada have the Rocky Mountains as the backdrop to their canvas but only this one can claim to be the first of all Canadian national parks. So be the first in your community to explore this great park and please visit your national parks website to plan your trip today.

Mount Revelstoke National Park, Revelstoke, British Columbia

Mount Revelstoke stands on the west side to the Rocky Mountains and is where you can find the world's only inland temperate rainforest. Here you will see some of the oldest natural environments in the world.

Mount Revelstoke has three areas in its park that are named after their elevation: Rainforest, Snowforest, and No Forest. As you travel higher through the park, any rain that might be falling turns to snow.

The spectacular sight of ancient forests below from the highest point of the park is amazing to behold. Another wonderful sight are the giant cedar trees on the Giant Cedars Nature Trail, a half-kilometer path that has 500 year-old trees as thick as a car.

For more information, please visit your national parks website for Mount Revelstoke.

Visiting a Canadian national park is like visiting all national parks - it is a welcome refuge from the daily grind. We have only looked at a few of the many things to see in the broad and diverse land that is known as Canada.
