Waterton Lakes National Park
The prairies of Alberta meet the peaks of the Rocky Mountains in Waterton Lakes National Park. Clear lakes, thundering waterfalls, rainbow-coloured streams, colourful rocks and mountain vistas await hikers and sightseers. With an exceptional diversity of wildlife and wildflowers and a cozy little waterfront town to serve as a home base, Waterton packs a big natural punch into a relatively small and accessible area.
The general public can bring horses into the park and ride in areas unburned by the Kenow Wildfire, plus some additional areas
At all times, pets must be kept on a leash or in suitable confinement.
