Of British Columbia's seven national parks, two are located on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. Pacific Rim National Park Reserve The exposed west coast of Vancouver Island offers many spectacular features in the park: the mighty Pacific Ocean, the long sandy beaches, the rugged and rocky coastline, an island archipelago, an ancient temperate coastal rainforest, and important First Nations archaeological sites. Gulf Islands National Park Reserve The Gulf Islands National Park protects a portion of the beautiful Gulf Islands of southern British Columbia. The park resembles a mosaic of protected land spread over 15 larger islands, a campsite on Vancouver Island and numerous islets, reefs and approximately twenty-six square kilometers of marine areas.
Mount Revelstoke National Park Mount Revelstoke National Park is a place of contrasts. From a dense 1,000-year-old rainforest of red cedars and giant pine trees, visitors can travel through a subalpine forest and finally explore the alpine meadows and tundra, one of the few places in Canada where you can drive directly to a subalpine prairie. The GANP is here to help you discover, explore and learn more about British Columbia's national parks and why we need to protect them. Kootenay National Park is a land of extreme nature and one of Canada's favorite natural destinations.
Yoho National Park is one of four protected areas that celebrate the majesty of the Canadian Rockies with incredible waterfalls. Mount Revelstoke National Park has a peak accessible by car with enormous panoramic views of the Canadian Selkirk Mountains.
