Adventures And Wildlife
Canmore and its surroundings are just amazing when it comes to adventures! In the summer you can do just about anything your heart desires, such as horseback riding, river kayaking, white-water rafting, canoeing, rock climbing, hiking, golfing, mountain biking, wildlife viewing, plus so much more! In the winter, you can go downhill and cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, dog sledding, ice skating, ice fishing, snowmobiling, sleigh-riding, and taking a relaxing soak in the Banff Natural Hot Springs.
The wildlife in and near the Canadian Rockies is absolutely astounding! It's home to a wide variety of large animals, including the Grizzly and Black Bears, Elk, Moose, Lynx, Big Horn Sheep, Mountain Goats, Cougars, Wolves, and Bison. It's also home to many smaller creatures such as hoary marmots, pikas, beavers, ground squirrels, and several types of birds, from bald eagles to endangered harlequin ducks.
The best times of year to visit the Banff area if you're looking to view lots of different type of wildlife are in early spring (April and May), and in the fall (Sept. and October). Be sure to bring your binoculars for the best viewing!
Spectacular scenery, fresh mountain air, and an abundance of activities to choose from, in addition to being only a 1 hour drive from a major city, make Canmore a convenient, picturesque town for summer and winter vacations.
Less touristy than the nearby town of Banff, Canmore's relaxed and casual atmosphere, combined with upscale art galleries, restaurants and shopping, is the ideal setting for a mountain escape.
