International Peace Park!

Waterton is quiet, uncrowded National Park. The Perfect place to view spectacular scenery, wildlife and enjoy outstanding recreational opportunities.

Discover nature at its best... Year Round!... A rare gem tucked into the southwestern corner of the province of Alberta, Canada.

In this breathtaking part of the world, the majestic Rocky Mountains rise suddenly out of the rolling prairies.

Amid the peaks are the lakes of Waterton Lakes National Park, carved out of the rock by ancient glaciers.

 

 



 

 

Waterton Lakes National Park borders Glacier National Park in Montana to the south, together making up the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, the first of its kind in the world. A place like no other, the uniqueness of Waterton Park is a blend of unusual geology, mild climate, rare wild flowers, and an abundance of wildlife. It is a scene which has remained unchanged for centuries.

Waterton Lakes National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, an International Peace Park, and a Biosphere Reserve! The only park in the world that has these three designations!


Foreign visitors... Please take special note of the very good Canadian Dollar Exchange Rate!
