Description : The highlight of Waterton’s sparkling chain of lakes is the international Upper Waterton Lake, the deepest lake in the Canadian Rockies. In 1932, the park was joined with Montana,s Glacier National Park to form the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park - a world first.

Located in the southwest corner of Alberta, Waterton Lakes National Park is bordered to the south by the state of Montana and on the west side of the continental divide by the province of British Columbia. Due to its small size (525 sq. km/202 sq. miles), cooperative management between all of its neighbours is essential for the protection of the park,s environment. For example, one male grizzly can occupy a home range three times the size of the park!

The unheralded line that separates Canada and the United States is the longest unfortified border in the world today, and perhaps in all of history. It says to mankind: Let not the cartographers rule, elevate nature and human friendship.

Stewart L. Udall U.S. Secretary of the Interior, 1967.
