Le Relais Day Shelter

Le Relais

Le Relais is a day shelter operated by the Lake O’Hara Trails Club, in cooperation with Lake O’Hara Lodge and Parks Canada. The Club operates Le Relais as a service to area visitors, and as such, our goal is to keep it revenue neutral – that is to to say we try to break even. We welcome donations in support of our trail projects, you will see a donation box by the front door.

It is a friendly and welcoming arrival point for visitors to the Lake O’Hara area, and is staffed daily from 8:30am to 6:30pm during the summer.  Visit Le Relais to find:

  • Reasonably priced coffee, tea and snacks. (Try the carrot cake if you get there before it’s gone!)
  • Lake O’Hara Trail Maps.  Lake O’Hara Trails Club and Parks Canada have subsidized the production of a trail map, and these are available for free or by donation.  A more detailed map with trail descriptions is also available for purchase.
  • Lake O’Hara Trails Club membership information and sign-up
  • Trail, weather and  wildlife information
  • The annual Lake O’Hara Trails Club T-shirt

Please note that all sales are by cash only and $US at par, so plan ahead!

The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the area, and would be happy to chat with you about your visit!
