You can enjoy the beauty of Glacier National Park, one of the most beautiful ones in the area. Spectacular scenes lie in every direction, so this is a perfect area for photographers and nature lovers. You can also visit Banff National Park, one of the oldest in the country. It was established in 1885 in the Rocky Mountains. It is situated 110–190 kilometers west of Calgary, Alberta, and extends for 6,641 square kilometers of mountainous terrain. Throughout the park there are many glaciers and ice fields, verdant forests, and marvelous landscapes. However, we especially suggest that you also visit one of the most popular and visited National Parks in Canada, Jasper National Park.  It is famous for having the largest wilderness area in Alberta province with many glaciers, lakes and peaks over 11,000 feet high. Here many tourists come to experience activities such as hiking, camping and skiing. The park contains many animals, including elk, moose, bighorn sheep and bears.

Wildlife here in the territory of the Canadian Rockies is incredibly beautiful and amazingly rich. The quieter tourist seasons here are the fall and spring, and during these months you will surely be able to see animals, possibly even larger ones such as bears, caribou and moose. Glacier National Park and Jasper National Park are the best places to view the beauty of wildlife. Although wildlife can often be seen along the road, you will definitely see more species if you go into the wilderness and experience hiking. Explore such trails as Iceberg Lake, Ptarmigan Tunnel, and Grinnell Glacier . Here you might possibly even see a  grizzly or black bear. Bullhead Lake, the Swiftcurrent Nature Trail, Dawson Pass and Cobalt Lake are all other excellent hiking trails where you could encounter wildlife.
