  • Nice surroundings, beautiful vistas and great hiking. If you want to get back to Nature - this is the place! 
  • Couldn't have asked for the scenery to be anymore spectacular. Went snowshoeing and the mountains and the snow were great. 
  • We loved Yoho National Park : it is a little gem. Too bad that even as late in the year as June, the roads to Lake O'Hara and Takakkaw falls are closed because of the snow.

  • When I walked into the park office in Banff and asked the guy at the maps desk where I should go if I'm in town for 2 weeks, without hesitation he said Lake O'Hara. He quickly qualified that with, "good luck" the quota is reached the day permits are available, one year in advance. There are many amazing places in the Rockies, and I haven't seen them all (yet), but it's safe to say that Lake O'Hara is one of my favorites. I was lucky enough to get a cancellation and get a ride on the bus and one night camping. I hiked the Alpine Circuit. Gorgeous! It was mid-July and there was still a little snow over the shadowy spots on the western side of the loop. There is a lot of up and down over the three mountain passes, but it's incomparable to anywhere else I've hiked.
  • Less visited compared to Banff and Jasper but equally beautiful and scenic. Spent an entire day exploring Emerald Lake and Takakkaw Falls.
  • Beautiful park with many hikes that range across skill types. A good moderate hike is out to Wapta Falls.
  • If you love hiking this is one of the best places, lakes, glaciers and water falls , it's all here. Beautiful!!
  • Amazing national park - hire a car and take a drive through. Be sure to check out the amazing Takakkaw Falls.
