Discover the natural wonder of Canada’s national parks with a new guide.
Did you know that Canada was the first country in the world to establish a dedicated national park service, in 1911? Today, Parks Canada encompasses 42 national parks (including 9 UNESCO World Heritage sites), 167 national historic sites, and 4 marine conservation areas.
“Canadians proudly offer travelers one of the world’s greatest opportunities to connect to the grandeur and the intimacy of nature and to experience unforgettable moments of personal discovery,” writes Alan Latourtelle, CEO Parks Canada in his introduction to National Geographic’s Guide to the National Parks of Canada on sale today.
The new guide from National Geographic is the official guide for Parks Canada. The book gives an overview of Canada’s 42 parks and each section provides useful service information on “How to Get There,” “When to Go,” and “How to Visit.” Plus you’ll find lists of hotels, campsites, and tour operators to help you plan your trip.
