It’s true – the scenery around the park could be used for hundreds of different postcards (and in many cases, has been).

There is simply no substitute for getting to see that kind of stunning scenic beauty with your own eyes.


As special as we think our backyard scenery is, there are lots of places around the world where you can take in a bit of nature. What we feel really makes our area unique is the kind of solitude our guests can experience year-round. In fact, look through online forums and you’ll find that visitors rave about the peace and quiet they can find here… something that’s increasingly rare in our busy world.

A Different Kind of Alone Time

Whether it’s for a few hours or a few days, there’s something inherently wonderful about having a bit of time to yourself without any outside pressures and distractions. And because we have so few people coming in and out of our part of Yoho National Park, that’s exactly what you get when you visit.

Getting a bit of alone time, even if it means just being alone with the people who are special in your life or meeting like minded folks, too often involves trying to shut out the world around us, rather than letting it in and enjoying a bit of nature. Freed from busy streets, electronic devices, and noisy neighbours, you might be surprised at just how at home you feel surrounded by clean air and picturesque mountains. Alone time is better here, whether it’s actually being by yourself or being “just us” with your loved ones or good friends.

Peace of Mind Made Accessible

Unfortunately, the terms “wilderness paradise” and “short trip” don’t often go together. Thankfully, our park is located within driving distance of Calgary and Edmonton. That means experiencing the very best of the Canadian Rockies doesn’t have to involve booking a flight, or taking lots of travel time – just make a reservation, take a short trip, and you’ll be kilometres from your everyday worries in no time.

Even better, that accessibility comes with comfort and safety. At our lodge, you can be surrounded by the peace and beauty of an alpine lake while snuggled under a cozy duvet. Maybe you were a camper or have just moved past that stage of your life or maybe even want a treat from that Thermorest mattress on the gound. We don’t just make peace of mind accessible, but also convenient at the same time. We are only a few kilometeres off the beaten path but 100’s of kilometers away in relaxation?

Go Without the Noise, Not the Amenities

At Lake O’Hara Lodge, we know that our guests want to get away without leaving the comforts of home behind. We pay close attention to every aspect of your stay, ensuring that you’re never too far from a soft bed, a warm shower, or British Columbia’s finest food and wine.

Although you might come for the scenic beauty of the outdoors, we are willing to bet that you’ll remember the luxury service, our staff and accommodations we have to offer. It’s that combination – solitude, natural beauty, and the best of class and comfort – that makes the experience of staying in Yoho National Park truly unique, and surrounded by the beauty of the Canadian Rockies. It’s truly something you have to experience to understand, so book your stay with us today.
