The first national park established in Canada, Banff National Park spans a region of unparalleled mountain scenery and is open year-round for wildlife viewing, sightseeing, and other outdoor activities.

Whether your fancy is glacial lakes, sandy beaches, rocky coasts, or lush forests, Canada has them all, in a national park system that’s one of the world’s best.
