Welcome to Canmore & Kananaskis Country in Alberta, Canada!
CANMORE, Alberta, Canada — is located literally just outside the south boundaries of Banff National Park – and is only a 15 minute drive from the town of Banff. Considered to be the residential community of the area – but secretly is the HUB of the Bow Valley Community – Canmore has an established infrastructure geared towards an outdoor lifestyle mixed with all the facilities you need to enjoy your stay.
The local arts community is quite active and there are several cozy galleries, museums, cafes and restaurants – all located in a 6 square block core area. Walking and cycling paths meander throughout the town – and a resident group of ducks stay year round.
Kananaskis Country- the best kept secret in the Canadian Rockies- is a provincial park network – and is the outdoor playground for many of us.
The 1988 winter Olympics left us a world class cross-country ski facility that also plays host to numerous competitions – World Cup Mountain Bike Race (July) – just to mention a few.
