Town of Canmore: Discover Canmore®
Welcome to Canmore!Canmore is a gateway to the Alberta Rockies and the mountain parks. Travelling from Calgary, this vibrant mountain village is only a few minutes short of the national park toll booths, but it is far from being a coffee stop on the way to Banff. In many respects Canmore is the Banff of 20 years ago. Not yet overwhelmed by high-end boutiques, Canmore retains a quaint low-key character where locals still form the better part of a cafe's clientele. The streets are packed with homegrown bakeries, bookshops, galleries and sporting shops. Year-round the stores are kept busy by the added influx of skiers, hikers and bikers looking eagerly into the surrounding mountains. The soaring peaks, clear lakes and deep forests of the region attract campers by the hundred in summer. In winter, visitors are more likely to spend their night in a cozy chalet than outside, but the outdoors remain the central attraction. The Canmore Nordic Centre for one has miles of groomed cross-country ski trails on the town's doorstep.
The Canmore Museum and Geoscience Centre delves deep into Canmore's past, including its rich railway and coal mining history.
