Not to be confused with the Glacier National Park in the United States, this Glacier National Park is across the border in British Columbia, Canada and holds just as much beauty. Spend time in this 521 square mile national park exploring the alpine meadows and glaciers, wandering through old cedar groves, or learning about Canadian’s railroad history at Rogers Pass National Historic Site. Weather wise, summer is the best time to visit this national park as all the trails and camping opens during the warmer months. However, winter is also fun due to the heavy snowfall, with skiing and snowshoeing being popular activities. Spend your days gawking at the impressive mountains such as Mount Dawson and Mount Sir Donald. Or hike to view a few of the 130+ glaciers within its borders. This park is also home to Canada’s largest cave system – the Nakimu Caves. You’ll also have your share of wildlife to spot, including golden eagles and over 230 species of birds, black and brown bears, caribou, elk, mouse, mountain goats, and more. And if you’d like to visit more than one park on your trip, Glacier National Park of Canada is close to four other Canadian national parks including Banff, Kootenay, Mount Revelstoke, and Yoho National Parks.
