    The spectacular setting of Waterton Lakes National Park is home to more than 50 per cent of Alberta's wildflowers - more than any other Rocky Mountain national park. More than 50 of Canada's rare flowers grow in Waterton, 30 of which are found only in this park.



    Yes, there was a devistating forest fire in the summer of 2017, but don't let that stop you from visiting. Now is the perfect opprotunity to see just what happens after a fire. Come and learn how Mother Nature heals.
