Lake O' Hara, Yoho National Park

4.3
#5 of 15 in Things to do in Yoho National 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.

    They ask the iriyama bus tour company, 取remashita in booking the day before. Had to give up mid, so I was happy. We enjoyed the hike to the Lake McArthur. Grows in mossy forest and rock garden-style place with changes in the way we walked. Beauty Lake and McArthur look forever and I want to be. Now stay camping site as well as the lodge and wanted to hike the area slowly.

    This is one of those gems that perhaps I should not spread the word as it is already hard to get reservation. It is blessing and curse, with limiting access and keeping it from hoards of tourists, but...  more »

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.
