The National Parks region of Western Canada and the USA offers some of the most spectacular scenery you will encounter anywhere in the world – magnificent snow-capped mountain peaks, lush green valleys far below, deep and wide canyons carved out millions of years ago, rugged and dramatic landscapes – not forgetting the variety of wildlife and flora that inhabit the region.
