Giveaway: One Parks Canada Discovery Pass

Giveaway: One Parks Canada Discovery Pass

Anyone who follows my blog knows how much I enjoy visiting Canada’s national parks. So far I’ve been to 31 of the 47 parks. I’ve yet to visit Rouge – just outside of Toronto but I have been to two of them in the far north – Ivvavik and Auyuittuq. And in less than a month I’ll be visiting the Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve for the first time. It’s located in the Gulf of St. Lawrence near the border of Quebec and Newfoundland. No one I have spoken with has ever heard of it. My dream one day is to hit them all but I may need to sell my house so I can afford the airfares to the remote ones!

Here are a few photos to whet your appetite for trips to national parks.

  1. Ivvavik and Auyuittuq are on my bucket list for sure! We are so lucky to have such beautiful parks all across the country.

  2. We are going to Riding Mountain National Park this summer. We love exploring new National Parks with our kids

  3. I would like to spend extended time in Yoho. After hiking the Iceline trail in September 2018 I want to see more!

  4. I would love to see Kootenay and Gwaii Haanas National Parks. But now that I’ve seen your photo of Auyuittuq, I would also like to go there.

  5. I would like to explore Jasper more this year. However, Watertown is the closest park for me, therefore I spend a lot of time there:)

  6. Would love to visit Glacier National park this summer…I live about an hour from Pacific rim National park reserve so a pass would be very handy 😄

  7. We are going to Jasper again this year (family favorite!) but we’d like to see Waterton Lakes as well.

  8. Just discovered your blog! Very interesting with great photos. I am on a limited budget but would like to explore Lake Louise and maybe get to Jasper. I love that Calgary/Banff now has a bus in the summer to Banff. So easy and reasonable!

  9. Banff NP has been in my wish list for so many years, I can’t even remember how long. It’s just soo expensive for us Brit’s though.

  10. Hi! I’ve been to Rouge Park without realizing it was a National Park, oops! At least I get to cross one off my list. I think number 1 on my list is Thousand Island National Park. And Yoho!

  11. Love to visit all the parks, but it’s been a few years since I got to visit Jasper National Park and Yoho National Park and I would love to go back to both.

  12. We would love to visit Quebec’s La Mauricie National Park. We have only been to Quebec City once for a short time – to be able to visit again and include that national park in the fall would be beautiful with the foliage.
