The Canadian Rockies are simply beautiful and awe inspiring. Of course, this is better seen in good clear weather. The peaks dominate you and you can only get this feeling within a national park like Yoho National Park. Lots of excellent activities and destinations within...More
Yoho has lots to offer, and is often overshadowed by Banff and Jasper. However some of our favourite places on our BC and Alberta road trip were in Yoho NP. The Wapata Falls are amazing, the Natural Bridge is breath-taking and the town of Field...More
Unfortunately, when we visited it rained most of the day so we weren’t able to take advantage of some excellent walks in the area with attractive waterfalls. What we did manage though was very enjoyable. Didn’t see any wildlife however.
Yoho National park is the Gem park of the Canadian Rockies.Besides having Lk. O'Hara( although the #1 site and hard to get in.) it has Emerald Lk. Takakkwa Falls, Iceline, and Burgess Shale with Lake Louise close by.
Stopped in at the Emerald Lake for lunch at the Lodge and then hiked around the lake in 1 1/2 hours. The mountains views, Emerald Lake and hiking trail was just what we were looking for. This is a must stop in Yoho National Park
The roads are fine. We were in a bus tour. Never been here prior. As a visual apprstsvrisfd good and they’re were places to stay or stop that from my vantage point which was just passing though seemed busy

Actually, my reference indicates that from the trailhead Yoho Valley Road it is about 6.2 km's (about 4 miles) to the Iceline Summit, or about 2 hours of walking. So double that for the return. We've done it, and It's a wonderful area, as you get nice and high above treeline, with all the interesting wildflowers, critters, and views that come along with it. Most striking will be your view of Takakaw Falls across the valley, as you'll be high above it. You will be rising almost 700 m's or 2000 feet, so a little bit of stamina will be needed. And it is the high mountains, so weather can change from nice to hazardous in a blink of the eye, so be prepared, and take lots of water to drink.
