Nestled high in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, this town draws visitors from all over the world each winter looking to experience legendary Canmore skiing and snowboarding. In the summer when the snow melts, the mountain trails become perfect places for Canmore hikes and camping under the stars. The state of Alberta is also home to a world famous film scene, culminating in the annual nearby Banff Film Festival. Experience the very best of Canmore by staying in your own luxury vacation rental. A ski condo or cabin in the mountains or a summer home beside a quiet lake can be the perfect place to relax in style and start creating timeless vacation memories.
During your days here, head downtown for shopping, art galleries, local museums, or champion caliber golf. In the afternoon, relax in one of several professional Canmore spas, go skiing or snowshoeing, or hike the mountain trails. Be sure to save some time to go rock climbing, rafting, and mountain biking as well. At the end of a day of outdoor activities, go home to your cabin or condo and host dinner on your private deck for your friends and family.
Here are a few additional suggestions of things to do in the area:
-Take a dog sledding lesson: In the winter, dog sledding is the way to get around in Canmore. Take a lesson or watch an exciting dogsled race.
-Take a quad or snowmobile tour: Depending on the season, a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle can take you to beautiful places that feet and cars can't reach.
