Explore Yoho National Park, a pristine forest landscape home to bright blue lakes, waterfalls, and rolling mountain ranges. 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. Put Yoho National Park at the forefront of your travel plans using our Yoho National Park travel itinerary planner.

Where to stay in Yoho National Park

Despite its isolated location, Yoho National Park offers a handful of luxury accommodations, most along Scenic Route 1. Some of the park's more remote lodges are accessible only by private transport. These isolated retreats--many of which deliberately avoid TV reception or Wi-Fi--typically cost a pretty penny. If you're looking for something a bit more affordable, consider staying in nearby Lake Louise or Banff and head to the park on a day trip.
