From Newfoundland to British Columbia, Canada is an endless spectacle of beautiful outdoor scenery! Many of the country’s best views and wildlife can be found in any one of the over 40 National Parks in Canada.
Are you going camping this weekend? Perhaps you should check out the Parks Canada website for everything you’ll need to know.
Here’s a couple of the great quotes found in the Globe and Mail’s article: The best of Canada’s national parks: an insider’s guide.
Gulf Islands, B.C.: “I love seeing the amazement on visitors’ faces when seals, sea lions, porpoises and even orcas surface during my programs at East Point, Saturna Island.” – Athena George, park interpreter
Waterton Lakes, Alta.: “I love to visit the Bosporus in Waterton – I can see the mountains, lakes and prairie sky. It really is an inspiring and captivating place.” – Catherine Reynold, interpreter
Riding Mountain, Man.: “I am awed to see our bison on the mixed-fescue prairie; imagining the past, inspiring us as a living piece of natural history as we move forward.” – Angela Spooner, resource conservation officer, Lake Audy District, bison manager
Pukaskwa, Ont.: “The Southern Headland Trail allows you to take in all that Lake Superior has to offer … calm, roaring, peaceful and fierce all wrapped in one.” – Joni Michano, visitor services attendant
Georgian Bay Islands, Ont.: “On an autumn day around Fairy Lake on Beausoleil Island, you can hear a pin drop – it’s stunning, and the perfect place to reflect.” – Victoria Evans, interpretation co-ordinator
Fundy, N.B.: “Hiking Dickson Falls, stargazing into a dark sky, walking on the ocean floor discovering what the giant tide has left behind – simply awesome.” – Norma-Jean Murphy, Parks Canada
Kejimkujik, N.S.: “I love paddling and portaging the same ancient waterways and canoe routes that first nations people have travelled upon for thousands of years.” – Ashley Moffat, visitor experience product development officer
Terra Nova, Nfld.: “On a starry summer’s night, it’s magical to canoe the still water of a fjord, where the sparkling sky and water appear as one.” – David Saunders, new product development officer
What’s your favourite National Park in Canada? I’m a BIG fan of Kejimkujik in Nova Scotia!
