Canmore

Bodies of Water · River Rafting & Tubing · Nature & Wildlife Tours
Bordered by the spectacular peaks of the Alberta Rockies, within a stone's throw of Banff National Park, the town of Canmore serves as an excellent base for outdoor adventures. Once reliant on coal mining, the town's flagging economy was given a huge bost when it played host to several events during the 1988 Winter Olympics. Nowadays, outdoor tourism in Canmore thrives, with excellent infrastructure for a range of adrenalin-pumping activities, such as mountain-biking, climbing, skiing, kayaking, and caving. During your Canmore vacation, keep an eye out for bears, elk, and cougars, who use the area around the town as a corridor between habitats. Plan your holiday in Canmore and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Canada online vacation builder.

Where to stay in Canmore

Resorts and mountain lodges represent the majority of places to stay in Canmore. Most lie just off the Trans-Canada Highway, allowing for convenient access to the surrounding area's natural attractions. Look deeper in town--towards the Bow River--to enjoy the most scenic sightseeing Canmore has to offer, straight from your hotel window. Remember to reserve in advance between June and September, as the town attracts most of its visitors during the warmer months.
