Lake O' Hara, Yoho National Park

4.2
#5 of 15 in Things to do in Yoho National Park
Water Body Nature / Park
Explore the vistas and deep azure waters of Lake O' Hara amidst an untouched alpine landscape. You'll find a number of well-marked trails around the lake. Situated on an elevation of 2,020 m (6,627 ft), the lake can be a challenge to get to--the best way is via bus. A trek up an 11 km (6.8 mi) trail is a more adventurous option, and be aware that you’re not guaranteed a bus ride down unless you made the reservation for the journey uphill. Book tours early to avoid disappointment. Add Lake O' Hara and other attractions to your Yoho National Park trip itinerary using our Yoho National Park family vacation planner.
