In the winter, there are the stunning Emerald Lake and Lake O'Hara areas, but only Emerald has easy access. But in the summer, you have a great choice of hiking opportunities, and the wonderful Yoho Valley Road, with it's hikes and waterfalls. Also, there aren't many affordable accommodation options, except if you're camping. If you have little time, the Yoho... More

Banff and Jasper are definitely great attractions but if you have some time at hand Yoho is a great place to see. Nature's beauty is all around in this part of the world. In Yoho stop by the natural bridge for some amazing photo ops and Emerald lake is great spot too.

The smallest of the four Rocky Mountain National Parks, but it packs the biggest punch. The mountains, the glaciers, the waterfalls, the lakes...all in such a concentrated area. Not to be missed : Takakkaw Falls, Emerald Lake, The Iceline Trail and Truffle Pigs.

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 loop around the alluvial fan going counter clockwise. You'll do a nice gentle climb up - in fact you won't hardly even... 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 is quite fascinating. The Spiral Tunnels are incredible. Because the gradient was too steep, tunnels have been built into the mountain at various levels. We saw one... 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, lakes and waterfalls, what's not to love?

Every trail in Yoho from the Iceline Trail to Sherbrook Lake to everything in the Lake O'hara region is stunning.

Couldn't have asked for the scenery to be anymore spectacular. Went snowshoeing and the mountains and the snow were great.

We loved Yoho National Park : it is a little gem. Too bad that even as late in the year as June, the roads to Lake O'Hara and Takakkaw falls are closed because of the snow.
