Located on the western slopes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, the park’s name derives from “Yoho,” which is a Cree expression of “awe and wonder.” Smell the alpine air while hiking through some of the finest trails of the Rockies, and stop by fossil sites on your way to the famous Burgess Shale. 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.

  • You should rent some cross country skis or snow shoes at the little rental shop there and go around the lake. Just beautiful. If cross country skiing stay on the trail close to the lake and do the loo...  more »
  • Yoho National Park is amazingly beautiful. In my opinion, Emerald Lake is as beautiful as Lake Louise. It's worth climbing up to Fairview Lookout. Kicking Horse River is lovely and the Natural Bridge ...  more »
  • Grew up around Canmore, AB and Yoho is still one of my favourite parks to visit. I find it just as beautiful as Banff and it's much quieter, if you're looking to get away from the crowds. Glaciers, la...  more »

  • 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.
