Overview

Join us as we explore Waterton Lakes National Park, truly one of the most beautiful mountain parks in North America. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995, Waterton has a great combination of stunning mountain vistas, clear lakes, thundering waterfalls and rainbow coloured streams. Known as the place where the mountains meet the prairies, the unique environments present in the park make it one of the most ecologically diverse regions in the Rocky Mountains. Breeding season will be in full swing and birding will be the focus each morning. The bulk of our days will be spent exploring the foothills and mountains of Kananaskis and Waterton, along with stops to explore prairie sloughs and the culturally significant Heads-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump. In addition to birding we will have the opportunity to see lots of mammals including Elk, Bighorn Sheep and possibly even Grizzly Bears.

Combine this tour with our Alberta Birds & Dinosaurs tour.
