  • Reasons to love Waterton
    guestBook Livre d'Or/ Explore150 Team/ nov 20, 2017

    There are countless reasons to love Waterton, and every time I walk out my front door, I can’t believe I am lucky enough to call it “home”. The stunning mountain vistas and the seemingly endless diversity of wildlife and wildflowers landed it a Unesco World Heritage Site and part of the world’s first International Peace Park.

    There’s just something about winding your way up a mountain trail to a crystal clear glacial lake with an uninterrupted view that makes my heart race—and not just from the exercise. It’s a place where you can hike, bike, and kayak all day and then stroll down the idyllic main street with an ice-cream cone in hand while you roam the many shops and restaurants. And be sure to keep your eyes
    peeled because in Waterton, it’s hard to go a day without encountering wildlife up close and personal. You're in their territory now!

    So come join me as I continue to explore my backyard and I promise you won’t be disappointed! We’ll visit the iconic Prince of Wales Hotel with the unbeatable view. We’ll climb up Bear’s Hump and try not to be blown away (literally and figuratively). And who knows? We may even make friends with a moose along the way! From a distance, of course.

    5 Reasons to Visit Waterton

    1. Waterton was designated as an International Peace Park along with Glacier National Park in Montana as a way to establish peace and goodwill between the two neighboring countries. Today, both parks work together for the preservation of the ecosystem, bridging gaps often created by borders.
    2. Waterton is known for being “where the prairies meet the mountains”. The mountains are dramatic and stunning due to the obvious lack of foothills.
    3. Waterton is the Wildflower Capital of Canada and every summer there is a festival celebrating the beautiful flora of the Canadian Rockies.
    4. Waterton is home to hundreds of animal species with frequent sightings of fox, bear, elk, mountain sheep, and sometimes even moose!
    5. Waterton is often considered a “hidden gem” in Canada, and those who are lucky enough to visit are rewarded with virtually untouched terrain, just waiting to be explored.

    A fantastic family destination to reconnect and explore nature. Definitely a Canadian Treasure to preserve. We have visited many times and always look forward to seeing again.

    My family and I went hiking up bear mountain, it was a pleasant hike and an even more pleasant view when we reached the top. You could see the little town of Waterton and the lakes and mountains all in one beautiful scene.
