Are you sure you booked enough time off work?
A lot of places claim to have it all. But just look at this list. Canoeing, paddling, and white-water rafting. Biking, hiking, and golf. Skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing. Horseback riding, caving, and climbing. Shopping, spa, or just out for a stroll. Galleries and pubs, distilleries and breweries, cafes and fine dining.
Whether you’re climbing the mountains or just looking up at them, we’ve got as many things to do as your legs can handle. Yes, even dog sledding.
Something for Everyone
Attractions & Sightseeing
Whether you're climbing mountains or climbing walls, we have some of Canada's most landmark attractions right in our backyard: the Rockies.
Arts & Culture
Beautiful street murals. Vibrant markets and festivals. Exciting museums, galleries, and studios. Crafts and local cultural activities. The mountains aren’t the only things that are inspiring around here.
Dining & Nightlife
From globally-inspired cuisine, farm-to-table fare, and fine dining, to classic comfort food and everything in between, this is a small town with a world of culinary experiences.
They say Canadians live by the seasons. But here, we live by an exciting calendar full of festivals and events, from Winter Carnival to comedy nights and poetry readings, any day of the week.
Hiking & Biking
Massive mountains and sprawling valleys mean hundreds of kilometres of majestic trails, from steep, adrenaline-pumping tracks, to rolling routes when you’re just in the mood for an easy stroll.
Nature & Parks
Beautiful lakeside parks with canoe and kayak rentals. Boardwalks, picnic areas, and a wildlife trail through a picturesque provincial park. One visit, and you’ll understand why we love to play outside.
Shopping might not be the first thing on your mind when you come to Canmore, but it doesn’t disappoint. One-of-a-kind boutiques, the best in outdoor clothing, handcrafted art, and even chocolate.
Sports & Recreation
Love to climb, fish, golf, or snowboard? Sure, you can stick with your favourite sport, because canoeing here isn’t like canoeing anywhere else. But we highly encourage you to try something new.
Tours & Experiences
Soar high above the mountains in a helicopter or make the climb on your own on a trail. Explore lakes, sip crafted local brews, or climb through wild mountain caves. We’ll take you there.
When it comes to helping you relax and unwind, Canmore Kananaskis is a natural. Shake off everyday life at one of our popular spas, salons, or wellness centers, or just enjoy a workout.
