Glacier National Park, BC
Established in 1886, Glacier National Park is one of seven national parks in British Columbia and features a 1,349km² area of wild terrain that can be explored by outdoor enthusiasts looking to experience the rugged landscape of the Columbia Mountains. With two major transportation routes through the mountainous landscape - the Canadian Pacific Railway and the Trans-Canada Highway - this region’s history is largely tied to our ability to navigate safe passages through the treacherous and avalanche-prone terrain, with tourism in the area really taking off after these throughways were engineered.
Home to active glaciers, jagged mountain peaks, picturesque alpine valleys, and dense stretches of forest; Glacier National Park is an outdoor lover’s paradise. Here, you can experience stunning scenery and vibrant wildlife, all while taking advantage of the countless activities that are on offer in the park. Whether you are looking for an easily-accessible hiking trail right off BC-1 or a remote trek to take you further into the backcountry, the majestic terrain of Glacier National Park is primed to be the location of your next great adventure.Read More
