In the winter, you can snowshoe over a frozen lake surrounded by craggy peaks and an abundance of wildlife, such as badgers, moose, elk, mountain goat, wolverines, and even grizzly bears.

  • It's really beautiful. There are, of course, on the shores of Lake Lodge is one of the very expensive but I wanted to stay. Water names like Emerald, and wildflowers are a fantastic landscape of this beautiful forest was combined with the PIN. If you are Louise Hogarth unrealistic beauty Emerald Lake was something more intimate feeling, what makes the difference. Just arrived around 10:00 weekend runners standing in a line of cars to get multiple is enough to make a person. Taka is away looking only for cow falls is not very impressive.

  • Natural bridge is one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited. I spent three hours there and was forced by my girlfriend to leave. I could have stayed there for days. The waterfall is also a spectacular site, I'm forgetting the name right now. Yoho and Jasper are our two favourite destinations in the Rockies.
  • Yoho national park is a stunning park that is easily accessible as a day trip from Calgary. There are many places to hike, bike or ski tour. Like the other parks around it, it requires a park pass and is a national park. It is well worth the visit in anytime of the year, as the views are breathtaking from almost any angle.
  • I visited this National Park during 10- days guided bus tour through canadian provinces Alberta and British Columbia , Rocky Mountains and all National parks. Unforgettable tour, highly recommend it! You get into Yoho Nat. Park after going west from lake Louise ( Banff National park, Alberta) , crossing border to British Columbia and Continental divide. As you are in Rocky Mountains, you are on very high altitude, surrounded by pristine nature, a lot of wild life. You can visit mountain lakes ( like Emerald lake with fantastic emerald water), Kicking horse river with spectacular waterfalls, Natural bridge waterfall, " 28 peaks - object of UNESCO and everything is remarkable. "Yoho! " - was Indians exclamation of awe and delight caused by views of this place.
  • Beautiful place to visit! I love that fact that you can pretty much drive 15 minutes any direction and see some kind of different landmark. It's beautiful and no nice to see during Canada 150 because it's free! Summer was crazy busy with tourists. Now that fall is here it's almost nicer to go see things because there isn't hundreds of people trying to see it as well! Great place to take people of all ages!!!!
  • If I could retire it would be to the Canadian Rockies. The whole area is outstanding and amazing scenery. We were there in June, it was still chilly and snow was still on the peaks but unfortunately no skiing open. Glacial lakes, mountain walks, just everything awesome!
