Breathtaking nature awaits your discovery during Canada’s 150th anniversary year.
Canada is justifiably renowned for its national parks which introduce visitors to special ecosystems and, if Mother Nature obliges, glimpses of wildlife which call these habitats home. This year marks Canada’s sesquicentennial anniversary, so it’s a good year experience some of these Canadian National Parks.
Parks Canada is responsible for protecting this network of parks and marine conservation sites, and as their 150th birthday gift, all Discovery Passes are free.
But with 224 sites to choose from, how to choose where to go? As a keen, outdoorsy Canadian who loves hiking, horseback riding, paddling, snowshoeing and otherwise experiencing the wild, I’ve visited many parks across my country. Here are my 18 personal faves listed from our east to west coasts – plus two I’m looking forward to visiting.
