Escape to the mountains from a Canmore cabin rental
Canmore vacation rentals are cozy cabins with views towards the mountains and warm fireplaces for the winter months. The cabins typically have outdoor areas with firepits that are ideal for a BBQ in the summer months. Start a hike from your cabin in the summer or get on to the cross country skiing trails from your backyard in the winter. Relax on your porch after a day filled with outdoor activities.
Delicious Canmore Restaurants
If you’re staying in Canmore, there are plenty of places where you can grab a bite and enjoy a drink. The many restaurants in town offer a diverse range of cuisines, so it’s impossible not to get something you like. These include bistros that serve both international and local dishes, as well as an ethically-run, all-organic café where you can eat fresh rice bowls, salads, and wraps.
The Iron Goat Grill offers some of the best mountain views in the area from its outdoor patio that is enclosed by glass in the winter. Try the unique take on classic dishes such as meatloaf made with bison, elk, and lamb or a waffle cone stuffed with mashed potatoes and fried chicken. You are sure to find something that you have never tried on the menu.
There are a number of delicious variations at the Rocky Mountain Bagel Co from the standard poppy seed version to bagels stuffed with jalapenos and cheddar. A popular option is the pizza style bagel with tomato, ham, and cheese. Enjoy these bagels with cream cheese at the restaurant or pick up a few to take back to your Canmore cabin rentals for breakfast.
Alberta is well-known as the beef capital of the nation. Expect to find an outstanding quality of steaks on restaurant menus. For the adventurous, try ‘prairie oysters’, bull’s testicles that are served in different ways. Game meat such as bison, elk, and moose are also available. Canadian favourites such as poutine (french fries with cheese and brown gravy), and beaver tails (fried dough pastries topped with whipped cream, Nutella, or Oreos) are also widely enjoyed.
Discover Art Galleries, Museums & the Geoscience Centre
Avens Gallery hosts exhibits by upcoming and established artists from all over Western Canada. There are a number of pieces that are on permanent display so you will always have something to see. The staff are very knowledgable about the local art scene if you have any questions and they are happy to take you on a guided tour of the sculptures, oil paintings, and abstract works on display.
The Canmore Museum tells the story of how the surrounding mountains were made and explains the history of the people who settled in the region. There are interactive exhibits that explain the geoscience involved in a way that even young children will find interesting.
Canmore With Kids: Hike Grotto Canyon and go horseback riding at Cross Zee Ranch
The Grotto Canyon hike is ideal for families as it is fairly short and flat but still offers amazing views. There are two paths in the canyon, one leads to a waterfall and the other to a small cave with ancient paintings on the wall. Hike the trail in winter to see a frozen wonderland and the waterfall is particularly beautiful when it is frozen. Take your ice cleats to make walking easier.
Young children will love the experience of learning to ride and older kids can go on a guided horse trail ride through the surrounding countryside. The trails are a relaxing experience for the whole family and take you through some truly spectacular mountain scenery. You can choose the length of trail that will suit you.
Experience Canmore's night life
There are a number of pubs and bars in Canmore where you can relax or bond with friends. If you intend to meet up for drinks before heading out to a restaurant, enjoy a round or two of beers on tap, wines, and cocktails. Canmore also has several microbreweries producing their own award-winning beers. Some hotels also offer bars and restaurants you can visit. If you'd like to do some dancing, there are a couple of places in town that offer live music, shows, and big dance floors.
Just a short drive away from Canmore, Banff is where you can find several pubs, bistros, and nightclubs. The scene in Banff tends to be busier as there are usually more visitors to the town. If you plan to dine out before hitting the clubs and dance floors in the area, there are a wide range of restaurants to cater to your tastes here as well.
Canmore Activities: Gondola Rides and Cave Spelunking
Head to Sulphur Mountain for a fun day out for the whole family. Spend the morning bathing in the hot springs at the base of the mountain before taking a gondola ride to the summit. Each glass-enclosed gondola seats four people and the views of the surrounding countryside is spectacular. At the summit, you will find two restaurants and a gift shop. There are boardwalk trails leading across the summit to allow you to take in the views from every direction.
The Canmore Caves offer two guided tours, the shortest is four hours in length and the second takes six hours. Explore the longest cave system in Canada in Grotto Mountain - you will see the Rats Nest Cave that features ancient fossils and examples of stalagmites and stalactites. Avoid this tour if you have a fear of confined spaces and rather take the above-ground Discovery Tour. The tours are only recommended for children over the age of 12 due to the physical nature of the adventure.
Canmore Food Events & Festivals
Canmore Uncorked is held in April every year and is a celebration of the delicious food and wine that is produced in the area.
