Alongside some of the most well-known (and most beautiful) travel spots in the world, two Alberta parks have made a list of the top destinations for outdoor enthusiasts! The news comes from Tripadvisor, which also put out a list of the top destinations in Canada recently.

And wouldn’t you know it- the two Alberta spots that made that list are also featured on this one! Turns out, Banff National Park and Jasper National aren’t just a top spot for the country, but the entire world. Things get even more impressive when you see what kind of company they landed in…
