Once a sleepy town that catered to backcountry hikers, Canmore has come into its own with world-class lodges and new resort facilities. Hikers to the magnificent Banff National Park are still very welcome, while outdoor adventures have expanded to include snowshoeing, dogsled expeditions and cross-country skiing. Embrace the true outdoor Canadian spirit while staying at one of these lodges in Canmore.

Being a short walk to town leaves you that much closer to the great outdoors at Ambleside. Join other guests around the two-storey, river-rock fireplace in the great room of this Canmore cabin with its vaulted ceiling and expansive views. Every room has its own ensuite and deliciously comfy beds. The owners are eager to assist with local knowledge. They may also be able to squeeze you in at their hot yoga studio in town.

Fire Mountain is perfect for a family getaway, with modern, townhouse-style accommodation close to downtown Canmore. The two-storey, two- or three-bedroom suites create room for a fully equipped kitchen, perfect for homemade meals after a day spent outdoors. Views from the upstairs balconies of the Three Sisters and Rundle Mountains are spectacular. Fire Mountain also welcomes pets, a service somewhat out of the ordinary in Canmore.

Basecamp Lodge

A new build in Canmore, this modern lodge takes its color scheme from the surrounding sandstone and granite mountains. Keyless entry and virtual check-in mean you don’t have to worry about losing your card on the trail. The Build Green program translates into fewer greenhouse gases, less waste and fewer allergens at this eco-friendly lodge. Warm up in the petite sauna and hot tub. A wooden crate filled with healthy breakfast snacks arrives at your door every morning.

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
