Connect with nature at Canmore, a stunning mountain town within the Canadian Rockies in Alberta, Canada. Situated on the fringes of Banff National Park, Canmore welcomes you with superb alpine scenery, and outdoor adventures aplenty. Framed by jagged snow-capped mountains, the beautiful valleys present miles of hiking and mountain biking trails across scenic meadows, turquoise lakes, and pristine waterfalls. Apart from the popular Grassi Lakes, the Ha Ling Peak, and the Grotto Canyon, the scenic countryside beckons outdoor enthusiasts all year. Expect paddleboarding, canoeing, and rafting excursions on the glacier-fed Bow River that passes through the town. Summers offer golfing, fishing, horseback riding, and caving, while winters highlight skiing, snowboarding, sledding, and ice skating. Between explorations, unwind at downtown Canmore’s cafes, breweries, distilleries, spas, and galleries. A trio of mountains, renowned as the Three Sisters, looms over Canmore as the town’s symbol and has been immortalized in several art pieces. Canmore’s busy event calendar is highlighted by the annual Highland Games that showcases Canada’s Celtic culture.
