Nature and Parks
Gulf Islands National Park Reserve covers 36 km2 (14 sq mi) of protected lands on 16 islands, and more than 30 islets, reefs and approximately 26 km2 of surrounding marine areas. Each island has its own landscape features, abundant marine life, a Mediterranean climate (of sunny summers and mild winters) and unique historical landmarks that have attracted people for more than 5,000 years.
Mount Revelstoke is located in the northeast of the city of Revelstoke, on the Trans-Canada Highway between Glacier and Yoho National Parks, and was established in 1914. Covering only 260 km2 (100 sq mi), it’s relatively small for a national park, but don’t let that fool you… Mount Revelstoke makes up for in diversity. From rainforests, subalpine forest, and meadows to rocky ridges and glaciers, hikers, cross-country skiers, and picnickers are spoiled with plenty of opportunities to experience nature at its finest.
