Waterton Lake – a Natural Wonder Embedded in the Mountains, Canada

Waterton Lake – a Natural Wonder Embedded in the Mountains, Canada
Waterton Lake, Alberta, Canada. The gorgeous mountain lake has borders with southern Alberta and Montana, USA. Waterton Lakes National Park is named after this one – the most picturesque and striking natural wonder around.

Waterton’s surroundings are preserved by UNESCO, since it features a diverse variety of flora, including prairie grasslands, aspen parkland, subalpine forests, alpine tundra and freshwater fens. Visitors are offered an exciting cruise in a historic ship, which follows the shores of Waterton and allows to admire its stunning unspoiled nature.

Why to go there?

There is Waterton town on the lake’s shores, therefore visitors can find all the facilities, which make their trip comfortable. Yet the nature is very well preserved and unspoiled outside the town, thus allowing to enjoy a quiet getaway.

When to go there?

Anytime, although the cruises are in service from May to November.

How to get there?

By car using Highway 5. The nearest big town is Calgary.
