Lake O’Hara. It’s one of the Rockies’ crown jewels, but it’s also one of the hardest places to get into. With bus-only, restricted access to help preserve the natural environment, O’Hara has become a sought-after place to visit, with access being granted only to a small portion of people who inquire each year. The only alternative is to hike 12 kilometres, one way. Our Editor-in-Chief and a team of writers take you on a journey into this remarkable area, through the people, the history and stories that make this landscape so legendary. With archival photographs, a historic timeline, lodging guide, and hiking recommendations, you can dive deep into O’Hara and start planning your trip for when you are one of the lucky few to get in. Stunning landscape and adventure photos paint a picture of what this region has to offer.
