Yoho National Park is the smallest of the neighbouring parks of Banff, Jasper and Kootenay giving this park an intimate feel.  Although small, it still has lots to offer with impressive scenery, spectacular waterfalls, expansive glaciers and over 400 km’s of hiking trails. Add Yoho’s famous Burgess Shale fossils and it’s easy to see why this park in the Canadian Rockies is a hiker's paradise.
