The Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks

This World Heritage site in Canada actually consists of four national parks (Banff, Jasper, Kootenay and Yoho) along with three provincial ones (Mount Robson, Mount Assiniboine and Hamber). And no matter what you're looking for – lakes, glaciers, mountains, hot springs, waterfalls – it's all here for you to enjoy. Nine million visitors flock to these parks annually. But humans aren't the only ones rushing to take in these natural wonders. The parks are also home to more than 300 animal species.
