Canmore Hotels

Cradled by snowcapped mountains and sitting before the natural grandeur of the Bow River Valley, the small town of Canmore takes an enviable seat in the Canadian Rockies. Oozing with mountain culture charm and sprinkled with cosmopolitan flair, the once sleepy town sprung to life back in ’88 when it hosted the Winter Olympics. Now a laid back holiday haven and an adventure junkie’s base, skiing, mountain biking, and hiking all come at a gold medal standard - while sheer R&R comes as pretty as a picture.

Things to see

Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park is a vast playground of adrenaline fuelled thrills and relaxed outdoor pursuits alike. Set among breathtaking mountain scenery, visitors can ski the glittering slopes, bike across the rugged terrain, or just take a hike. The Canmore Museum and Geoscience Centre is crammed with an eclectic collection of over 10,000 exhibits. Here you can learn about Canmore’s history - from its humble beginnings as a mining town, to the 1988 Winter Olympics. If golf is more your drive, the Silvertip Golf Course and Canmore Golf and Curling Club are two of the best courses in the region. Carved out of the Rockies terrain, the manicured parcels both offer world class facilities in the most magical of settings. For a bit of horse play, don your cowboy hat and trot to Cross Zee Ranch. With many scenic riding trails to choose from, it’s a memorable way to see the Rockies.
