Tips For Staying In Canmore

Choosing A Hotel in Canmore

What to do in Canmore
Canmore, like many other Rocky Mountain destinations, is a popular place to visit at anytime of the year. Summer provides endless walking trails through parks and wilderness areas surrounding Canmore. Winter brings you some great skiing in the Canadian Rockies. Be sure to check out some ski resorts just north of Canmore in Banff or Kananaskis Village, which is to the south. In addition, many venture to Rat's Nest Cave nearby for a guided cave tour - a year-round attraction.


When to visit Canmore
The majority of hotels in Canmore are situated just off the Trans Canada Highway, which makes for a convenient arrival to your destination after a long drive. There's really something for everyone here. Browse through a selection of hotels, motels and some really beautiful resorts. If you are travelling on a budget it is possible to find some cheap Canmore hotels and motels. The resort-style accommodations might set you back a few extra Toonies and Loonies, but go ahead and pamper yourself, you deserve it. In terms of areas, Canmore is not really all that big, so you are either in Canmore or you are not in Canmore. If you have a specific destination to visit then pick a hotel accordingly. For example, if you're looking to take in the wilderness of Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park or Bow Valley Wildland Provincial Park then pick a hotel in the city centre or slightly to the south. If, however, you'd like to make a trip to Banff, then perhaps find a hotel towards the north end of the city.

A typical day trip for a tourist would be to head to Banff, which is only a 20 minute drive north along the Trans Canada Highway. In fact, many tourists travelling to Banff will often find a hotel in Canmore instead to save a bit of money (or if Banff Inns, hotels and other Banff accommodations are sold out). Finally, Canmore is only about 1.5 hours west of Calgary.
