  • Tourism Canmore Kananaskis - February 17, 2022

Plan the family vacation of a lifetime with a trip to Canmore and Kananaskis that grandparents, parents, and kids will be eager to repeat. No matter the size of your family or the ages of its members, the Canmore and Kananaskis offer something new and exciting to make staying and playing easy for everyone.

Stay in comfort

Do you like to be right in the middle of the action? Experience the heart of downtown Canmore at your doorstep at Rundle Cliffs Lodge. Here, you can easily explore all the town centre has to offer on foot. Find the perfect souvenirs, enjoy full-family meals at top-tier restaurants, and make memories everyone in your party will cherish. 

Rundle Cliffs Lodge provides the comforts of home paired with the luxury of a vacation rental. Suites are equipped with everything you need to take advantage of your stay, including jaw-dropping mountain views you’ll want to snap plenty of photos of.

Alternatively, you can stay in style at the Lodges of Canmore. Let the kids make a splash in the heated outdoor pool while you soak in the hot tub after a day of adventuring. Health and wellness buffs can hit the gym while the rest of the family lounges at the outdoor community BBQ area. Everyone will have room to kick back and relax in the fully furnished one, two, and three-bedroom condos.

Experience the fresh mountain air

Cross-country skiing or fat biking are two of the best ways to explore our winter wonderland with the whole family. Trail Sports offers everything you need to get hooked on winter sports. Cross-country skiing is the perfect low-impact sport for the whole family, and Trail Sports will set you up with rentals and knowledgeable instructors so you can hit the trails with confidence. If you’d rather go for a cruise, fat biking is as easy as riding a regular bicycle. Thick tires will help you cover the snow-dusted paths like a pro.

Trail Sports is located at the Canmore Nordic Centre, which provides 65 kilometres of groomed, winding trails for you to discover while you take in incredible scenic terrain. Dress warm and get ready for an unforgettable experience in the Canadian Rockies.

Cheer on the home team

Get cozy in a blanket and sip hot chocolate while you cheer on your new favourite hockey team in our community rink, right in the middle of the action. High energy and fast-paced games give you lots to smile about as a Canmore Eagles fanyou’ll be eager to round up your family and head to the local hockey arena anytime from September to March. The best part? No one needs to go hungry in the fully licensed Eagle’s lounge. 

The Canmore Eagles Hockey Club is part of the Alberta Junior Hockey League, for players aged 16 to 20. The team is a community-owned non-profit, which means you can support a good cause while having a good time!
