Kootenay National Park

Kootenay National Park is nestled in the Rocky Mountains in southeastern British Columbia. It was created just over 100 years ago to establish a new highway across the Rockies between Banff National Park and Windermere, British Columbia. Kootenay offers sweeping views of the mountains, contains hot springs and has an abundance of wildlife. It also shows many reminders from all the past forest fires over the years.

British Columbia: Yoho & Kootenay National Park

We flew into Calgary at the end of August to embark on a twelve-day road trip across six national parks: Glacier in Montana; Waterton, Banff and Jasper in Alberta; and Yoho and Kootney in British Columbia. Yoho And Kootenay are nestled right beside Banff and Jasper in eastern British Columbia and together these four national parks, along with three nearby provincial parks, form the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site.
