LOCATION & SETTINGS
ENJOY YOUR STAY IN THE CENTRE OF THE ROCKIES
Established in 1885, Yoho National Park is one of 41 national parks in Canada. Yoho represents the western slopes of the Rocky Mountains region and it is renowned for its rock walls, spectacular waterfalls and soaring peaks. In the shadow of the Great Divide, Yoho holds the secrets of ancient ocean life, the power of ice and water, and unique plant and animal communities that continue to evolve today. Some of the most intriguing history of the region surrounds the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway through the 1800 metre Kicking Horse Pass – a stretch of line between Wapta Lake and the town of Field. Wildlife in the park is both abundant and observable. Elk, bear, moose, deer, wolf, and the more elusive Canadian lynx make their home in the park.
