This UNESCO World Heritage site, National Park, Biosphere Reserve and International Peace Park has some of the oldest, exposed sedimentary rock in the Canadian Rockies, rare vegetation, lakes, waterfalls, gorgeous, expansive vistas and outdoor recreation. What more could you want in a National Park? Of course, there's many opportunities for hiking and a good chance of seeing abundant wildlife. Take advantage of the lakes and rent some water equipment. Stand-up paddle board, canoe, kayak or pedal-boat through the water. Go fishing, horseback riding, take a shoreline boat cruise, play golf, geocache, take a carriage ride, catch a theater performance, take a guided tour and more. Visit the monument dedicated to the first oil well in Alberta or check out the historic Prince of Wales Hotel, which was built in 1927. Whatever recreation you want to participate in, you'll probably find it here.
