An Authentic Rockies Community
With so many adventures located in and near this laid-back town located at the entrance of Banff National Park, you won’t miss the crowds of its busier neighbour, Banff. Spend your days exploring the area’s dramatic mountain peaks, alpine lakes, and the stunning natural habitat of our Canadian wildlife, then relax at a local pub or day spa. Canmore can be your home away from home in the Rockies.
Things to Do
