Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park


The contrasts within this isolated park straddling the Alberta–Saskatchewan border, are arresting: endless prairies turn to undulating hills forested with cypress, harboring inland lakes. Elk, deer, moose and birdlife flourish in this fertile sanctuary. Each of the two sections has a distinctly different feel. We recommend exploring both to get the full perspective.
