Canada is a colossal land, spanning six time zones. Canada's Parks are preserving the beauty and wild power of this land.
This video journey takes us through 21 Canadian Parks from East to West. Starting with L' Anse aux Meadows National Park in Newfoundland, where Vikings waded ashore a thousand years ago. We explore the forested Parks of central Canada to the stunning mountains of the West. Included are Gros Morne, Cape Breton Highlands, Kejimkujik, Prince Edward Island, Kouchibouquac, Fundy, La Mauricie, Point Pelee, Ellsmere Island, Grasslands, Riding mountain, Waterton Lakes, Banff, Jasper, Kootenay, Yoho, Wood Buffalo, Nahanni, Pacific Rim and Kluane...majestic and resplendent.
Stocky Frenchmen, called voyagers, first explored this northern Continent, touching many of the areas now set aside as National Parks. Now, wild creatures unify this land of Canada, making the Parks a living refuge. Without them it would be lifeless scenery. Today people come from crowded cities, to get back to the roots of our collective memories. The commonplace is left behind in this land that too few see. Here we find the natural heart...the true spirit...of Canada's National Parks.
