We proudly showcase the seven National Parks of British Columbia. Please start your outdoor adventure in the National Parks of BC by selecting a national park from one of the regions below.
Vancouver Island and BC Islands
Pacific Rim National Park Reserve
The exposed west coast of Vancouver Island provides many spectacular features in the park; the powerful Pacific Ocean, long sandy beaches, rugged and rocky shoreline, an island archipelago, old-growth coastal temperate rainforest, and significant First Nation archaeological sites.
Gulf Islands National Park Reserve
Gulf Islands National Park protects a portion of BC’s beautiful southern Gulf Islands. The park resembles a patchwork quilt of protected lands scattered over 15 larger islands, a campground on Vancouver Island, and numerous islets, reefs and approximately twenty-six square kilometres of marine areas.
Mount Revelstoke National Park
Mount Revelstoke National Park is a place of contrasts. From dense old-growth rainforest of giant 1,000-year-old red cedars and pine trees, visitors can travel up through subalpine forest, and finally explore alpine meadows and tundra, one of the few places in Canada where you can drive right into a subalpine meadow.
Kootenay National Park
Kootenay National Park occupies the southwestern slopes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, part of the Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site. visitors experience a land of startling contrasts, towering summits, hanging glaciers, narrow chasms, andsemi-arid grasslands, where even cactus grows.
Glacier National Park
Glacier National Park is characterized by steep, angular mountains, deep, narrow valleys, numerous icefields and glaciers, waterfalls, countless avalanche paths, and tremendous precipitation. Glacier National Park offers wilderness camping, hiking, mountaineering, and Nordic and alpine skiing.
Yoho National Park
Yoho occupies the western slopes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, a place of rock walls, spectacular waterfalls and soaring peaks, holding the secrets of ancient ocean life and the power of ice and water. See the natural rock bridge spanning the Kicking Horse River, and the immense Hoodoos, pillars of glacial till.
