You visit national parks to get away from traffic, not to be stuck in it!
No traffic jams in Kluane National Park in the Yukon

Canada wins

A country of a similar size with a tenth of the population of another country
is bound to have more unspoiled wilderness.
Some Canadian national parks are even very difficult to get to (no roads in)
and therefore offer a more true wilderness experience.
Unlike the more popular US national parks,

That is indeed a rainforest. Iran has some temperate rainforests around the south shore of the Caspian. It also has mountain ranges, mountain meadows, a beach resort island called Kish, hundreds of miles of shoreline, and several different types of desert. It has a large salt lake called Urmia which is famous for its huge flocks of flamingos. It has large marshes and wetlands in the Shadegan region of the southwest. Before the fall of the Shah, Iran used to be a popular western destination for outdoors tourism because of its wide-ranging topography. It still has some of that industry even today.
I had to rep you for that. I knew Iran had some interesting geography, but not that. Too bad such a beautiful country isn't more accessible to outsiders.

I totally agree both are blessed. I've been to several National parks in both countries and the feeling I got from each of them was how beautiful they were in their own unique ways. Not once did I think that hands down Canada or the U.S has a more beautiful National Park system.
