Visiting Canmore Kananaskis is an experience that leaves travellers breathless, and for some a visit just isn’t enough. Extreme athletes, Everest summiters, retired Olympians, explorers from near and far. People who have lived and trained around the world are drawn to the kind of mountain lifestyle Canmore Kananaskis has to offer: a stunning landscape with an unlimited potential for outdoor activities—both summer and winter—and the personality of the region draws them back, sometimes permanently. The vibrant culture, kind hospitality, and endless wilderness create a brilliant place to build a life.
Does that mean you have to be a sports nut to love living here? Of course not. That’s the beauty of life in Canmore Kananaskis: living here means different things to different people. Mountain life can be scaling great mountain peaks or enjoying a glass of wine on a patio staring up at one.
