Canmore is located about 60 minutes west of the outskirts of Calgary, which has the third busiest airport in Canada. The town of Canmore lies nestled along the banks of the Bow River in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. It is close to Banff and Kananaskis Country. Chosen as the site of the Nordic ski events (Canmore Nordic Center) for the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics, Canmore began attracting international attention as a major tourist destination. It has sustainable growth with a small town feel. There are several walking and cycling trails leading to the downtown core. Enjoy golfing, sightseeing, hiking, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, biking, shopping, observing wildlife, a multitude of eating establishments or just relaxing.

Banff National Park, which is about 20 minutes from Canmore, was established in 1885 as Canada’s first National Park and third in the world. The park was awarded a UNESCO World Heritage Site designation in 1984. Some describe it as “paradise,” “heaven on earth,” or “a place where God lingered during creation.” The park and town site offers rugged beauty, unspoiled landscapes, and pristine mountain ranges. You will be hard pressed to find a finer balance of unspoiled wilderness and refined amenities. Experience an unrivaled alpine escape at “The World’s Finest National Park.” You can also drink in nature’s wonder at Lake Louise—one of the Canadian Rockies’ most beloved destinations, with turquoise waters sparkling underneath the towering Victoria Glacier. Enjoy days beyond compare in the unspoiled beauty that the area can offer.
