One of Canada’s best features is the natural beauty that is surrounding its citizens and visitors at all times. And thankfully, many of those gorgeous natural settings are protected for the public by the National Parks System. The following are some of our favorite parks in the country, but with over 220 national parks, marine conservation areas, historic sites and other protected lands, you may just want to fire up your RV and go discover which ones you love best.
Banff National Park
Banff National Park is bound to blow you away. Nestled in the Canadian Rockies, this national park offers some of the most breathtaking scenery in all of Canada with 6,641 square meters of gorgeous mountain peaks, tranquil woods, flower meadows and Lake Louise’s famous emerald waters. Although, Banff visitors don’t just get to admire the beautiful scenery, they get to immerse themselves in it by skiing, snowboarding, kayaking, canoeing, golfing, hiking, whitewater rafting and enjoying just about every outdoor activity imaginable. Even better, Banff National Park is just a 1.5-hour drive west of Calgary.
Thousand Islands National Park
If you prefer massive expanses of water over mountaintops, you’ll fall in love with Thousand Islands National Park at first sight. This Ontario park offers numerous campsites on 12 islands that can be accessed by boat. These gorgeous rocky, pine-covered islands are located only a few hours from some of Canada’s biggest hotspots including Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal.
Pacific Rim National Park Reserve
British Columbia is internationally known as one of the most beautiful and exciting destinations in the world for outdoor enthusiasts. Whether you’re into surfing (Long Beach is one of Canada’s best surf spots) or hiking (a 75-kilometer hiking trail weaves through the park’s forest) or exploring islands by paddle or motor, the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve on Vancouver Island’s western shore is guaranteed to make you appreciate the Great White North.
