Jasper National Park
#1 in Best National Parks in Canada
Jasper National Park is by far the best place to experience the Rocky Mountains. The largest national park in the Canadian Rockies offers endless opportunities to go hiking, biking, boating and more. Jasper also holds the unique distinction of being the world’s second-largest dark sky preserve, so you can expect excellent conditions for stargazing when you visit. To soak up the best of this Alberta national park, drive down the famous Icefields Parkway, which is considered one of the most scenic drives in the world.
Gros Morne National Park
#2 in Best National Parks in Canada
Gros Morne National Park’s geography is so special, it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Situated on the island of Newfoundland, the park stands out for its striking fjords and the Tablelands, where visitors can walk upon the exposed Earth’s mantle. Gros Morne’s location on the Gulf of St. Lawrence also affords access to impressive coastal scenery, which you can view along the appropriately named Coastal Trail. Meanwhile, ambitious hikers can climb to Gros Morne Mountain’s summit on the trail of the same name.
