Selected operator for a historic teahouse in Yoho
Parks Canada administers one of the finest and largest systems of natural and cultural heritage places in the world. National historic sites reflect Canada’s rich and varied heritage and provide Canadians with the opportunity to learn more about our diverse history.
Following a competitive bidding process, Parks Canada issued a license of occupation to the Alpine Club of Canada to operate the Twin Falls Teahouse National Historic Site in Yoho National Park for a period of 10 years.
Parks Canada administers this site on behalf of Canadians. The license of occupation will allow the Alpine Club of Canada to occupy and operate the national historic site.
Twin Falls Teahouse National Historic Site is located near the foot of Twin Falls in the upper Yoho Valley of Yoho National Park. The National Historic Site has been a destination for generations of hikers exploring the Yoho backcountry, and is an outstanding example of the style of construction and lodging typical of early wilderness recreation in the Rockies.
Parks Canada is pleased to work closely with the Alpine Club of Canada to help Canadians discover and connect with history and nature at Twin Falls Teahouse National Historic Site.
