Things to do
On the western slopes of the Great Divide, Yoho National Park brings Canada’s alpine majesty within reach of casual visitors and seasoned backpackers alike. Unplug and spend time with family at one of four campgrounds, challenge yourself with an all day hike to a half-billion-year-old fossil bed, or immerse yourself in Canadian history by travelling through the mountain pass that linked the West to the rest of Canada.
