Astride the border of Alberta and Saskatchewan, just 65km (40 mi) southeast of Medicine Hat, Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park rises up from the prairie on a plateau of 600 m (1,970 ft). In summer, water ski, swim and enjoy the beach. Camp in one of many forested campgrounds. Explore hiking and mountain biking trails with breathtaking views of clear blue lakes. Experience special unexpected wildlife encounters. Come back in the winter to explore on snowshoes or cross-country skis. Book a backcountry hut and experience the stillness of a winter night off the beaten path.
