   WATERTON PARK

RED ROCK WATERTON

 
 Waterton National Park has many distinctions. It borders Glacier National Park across the American border, it is a Unessco World Heritage sight, and it is part of the world's first "peace park".

WATERTON ALBERTA

What will you discover in Waterton?
Well, Waterton Park is a fascinating blend of prairie which very quickly turns into vast mountain terrain. You will find stunning vistas of forests, lakes, Rocky Mountains, red rock canyons and rolling foothills. Great hiking trails await the lucky traveler who comes to Waterton.

Waterton is a couple of hours from Calgary in the southwestern corner of Alberta and adjacent to the American border.

Across the American border, in Montana is Glacier National Park, which is the other half of the National Peace Park. Nearby is a large National Park in British Columbia called Glacier National Park! The Peace Park is a joint national park between Canada and the United States. The American side of the park is entirely different from the Canadian side with steep mountains, cliff views, drives and alpine terrain. We recommend seeing both parks to experience the full majesty and beauty of the region.
