Canada has some incredible geography and there is enough adventure here to last you a lifetime and there is lots of beautiful landscape that you can experience in the national park.  You can experience everything from glaciers to white sandy beaches.  If you are planning a trip into the Canadian wilderness then here are some of the best national parks in Canada.

Jasper National Park

If you want to check out the Rocky Mountains then Jasper is one of the best places to do just that.  It is the largest national park in the Rockies and here you can hike, bike, fish, camp, or boat.  Jasper is also the world’s second largest dark sky preserve you can see the stars here clearly and brightly.  Getting here takes you down one of the most scenic drives in the world, the Icefields Parkway.  Take your time and enjoy the scenery.

Cape Breton Highlands National Park

Located on the northern tip of Cape Breton Island you will find Cape Breton Highlands National Park.  One of the biggest attractions here is the Cabot Trail, a long winding road that allows you to take in the incredible scenery.  There are lush forests, coastal cliffs and this is “where the mountains meet the sea”.  Thousands of tourists flock here every year to take in the trail and to hike up the Skyline Trail.  Here is a closer look at the trail.

Kluane National Park

If you are an avid hiker then you need to add this national park to your must visit list.  It is home to 17 of the highest mountains in Canada including Mount Logan.  You can go rafting right beside glaciers or take one of the air tours that go over the icefields.  If you are a hiking/camping enthusiast you will truly love it here.

Fathom Five National Marine Park

Canada borders three oceans and has thousands of miles of coastland so it’s not surprising that there would be at least one marine park you need to visit.  If diving is one of your passions then this is the place you want to be, there are plenty of underwater sites to explore.  Here you will find caves, cliffs and more than 20 different shipwrecks to explore.  If diving is not your thing then give backcountry camping a try on Flowerpot Island, which is only reachable by boat.

These are but a handful of the national parks you can visit across Canada, you could spend a lifetime exploring and still not get through all of them.
