Hiking the Lake O’Hara Alpine Circuit – British Columbia
This is an extraordinary hike that over-delivers when it comes to mountain scenery. The Lake O’Hara circuit is a place that will stir your soul with turquoise lakes, stunning glaciers and rugged mountain peaks. Hikes in the area range from easy to very difficult with choices varying from a pleasurable walk around the lake to more challenging routes that take you along airy trails with steep drop offs. Accommodation options include the more expensive Lake O’Hara lodge, the Alpine Club of Canada hostel, and a nice campground. Any of these options must be booked well in advance and only a limited number of hikers are allowed up on the bus every day.
