Ontario, Canada’s oldest provincial park is Algonquin Park. Established in 1893, it boasts over 1,908,394 acres of untouched rivers, lakes, forests and habitat to thousands of species.

Algonquin is also unique in that the only way to explore the interior of the park is by foot or canoe. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation put together this spectacular time lapse video of Algonquin transforming from sunset to night.

Stars and creatures come out, and the Northern Lights even make their appearance in the distance. Simply put, if you can ever get yourself to Algonquin you probably should.
