This is the grandfather of the Canadian parks, since its establishment was in 1885, more than a century ago. It covers about 2000 square miles in which it has glaciers, mountainous terrain, extensive ice fields and dense forests. The number of tourists who visit it annually has increased to the incredible figure of more than 5 million and this has had as a consequence its ecosystem has been threatened. Therefore, if the park is among your dream destinations it helps to preserve this natural treasure that by the way is a World Heritage site because it belongs to the whole of parks of the Canadian Rockies.
