Welcome to Canmore & Kananaskis Country in Alberta, Canada!
Canmore & Kananaskis Country
Canmore 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.

Why not enjoy a white water rafting banff trip that is super close to Cannore? Several sections of the Kicking Horse River make it ideal for all types of rafting levels. A Kicking Horse River rafting trip is renowned as the best of Canadian Rockies and closest to Banff, Lake Louise, Golden and a pleasant drive from Calgary, Alberta.
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.
