Field, Canada

This tiny settlement of wooden houses is situated in Yoho National Park, just over the provincial border from Lake Louise, at the opposite side of the Kicking Horse Pass

Encompassed by an amphitheatre of magnificent mountains, this is a perfect base for exploring the grandeur of the surrounding scenery.

Yoho National Park

Yoho National Park is less visited than nearby Banff, and has scenery of incomparable beauty, such as Lakes O'Hara and Emerald and the Takakkaw Falls.

Burgess Shales

Field village was created by the railway and this still dominates everyday life here. Nearby lie the famous Spiral Tunnels, a veritable feat of railway engineering whilst a more unusual local attraction is the Burgess Shales, an almost unique geological formation of sedimentary rock, rich in fossils of the Mid Cambrian period of 530 million years ago.
