Mount Robson Provincial Park, the second oldest park in British Columbia, is truly one of the world’s crown jewels. At 3,954 meters above sea level, Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies, towers over the lesser surrounding peaks, with Alberta’s Jasper National Park as its easterly neighbour. Designated as a part of the Canadian Rocky Mountains World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1990, Mt Robson offers spectacular scenic hiking trails and campsites with the finest views in the Rocky Mountains, winter or summer. Picturesque waterfalls, blue glaciers, pristine lakes, and lush valleys endow this north continental range of Canadian Rockies.
