Lake O’Hara 2018 Summary:

Lake O’Hara 2018 is our 8th annual  landscape photography tour into the most beautiful little valley in the Rockies.  A *description of the tour and tickets* will be available soon.  Go to the eventbrite page for a complete tour description and to get your ticket.  This tour always always sells out early and this is the first time a spot has opened up for the tour.  People on the waitlist have already been notified and given a bit of time to purchase the ticket but it’s still available.  Now the ticket is being released to everyone.  I hope you get it if you’re interested and I see you in Lake O’Hara!

Suggested Equipment list for guests on the 2018 Lake O’Hara tour:

The Lake O’Hara tour info and suggested equipment page is an essential stop if you’re coming up to Lake O’Hara with me this year.  This page is also a great resource for anyone planning their own trip there too.  Bookmark this page for your next trip to an ACC alpine club of canada backcountry hut for your own landscape photography trip too.  The gear list here will be a valuable planning resource for your own future backcountry photography trips.  My suggestions for equipment and the information about the tour on that page will prepare you well for this trip, and for any hut based backcountry trip.  Being properly prepared for the backcountry exponentially helps you to enjoy it more.  It’s always a good feeling to know that you have everything that you’ll need before you go!  It’s an even better feeling being comfortable when the trip isn’t “picture perfect!”  This equipment list will help you to do that.

I hope to see you in the back country and may all of your landscape photography trips be awesome!


Tour cancellation and ticket transfer policy:

     We understand that life sometimes gets in the way of some of our guests plans and they have to back out of a tour.  We have to balance that understanding with our business need ss as well.  To that end we have come up with a cancelation policy that brings balance to both sides of the equation.  We want to be understanding, but we also need to meet our commitments to the  tour and the related expenses, and both sides need to honour our commitments to each other.  Below is our tour cancellation policy.  By purchasing your ticket on the tour you agree to the cancellation policy below.  I hope we don’t have to use it, but if we do I think that this compromise is reasonable for both of us.  Kazue and I would like to thank you for your interest in our tours.  However, if for some reason we have to cancel a tour we will guarantee a 100% refund of the entire tour registration fee.  We limit our liability in the unlikely event of a tour cancellation up to and including the tour registration fee paid.  We do not accept cancellation liability, or any other liability, over and above the registration fee of the tour.
