Summer / Fall

Our summer and fall season at Lake O’Hara Lodge, which runs from mid-June to early October, brings the best of long days in a pristine mountain setting.

The warm summer days don’t just bathe the lake in sunshine, but melt away the winter snows to reveal a system of hiking trails second to none. Weaving around numerous mountain lakes, through meadows of wildflowers or traversing high alpine ledges there is a trail for everyone. Come mid-September the changing colours of the larch trees add spectacular highlights to the landscape; casting a golden glow onto the forest floor.

If you are looking for a quiet natural setting, an unforgettable hiking experience or just a chance to get away from the crowds the beauty and solitude of Lake O’Hara Lodge is probably what you need.
