Much cheaper than Banff National Park
Too far away from Scotland
In a nutshell
Great Base for Exploring Banff National Park
Walk The Main Street
We found Canmore to be a quaint little town, very peaceful and surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the Rocky Mountains. We arrived late afternoon on a mid June Saturday and were welcomed with dark swirling clouds that looked like they would drop their contents any minute,...

Santa Lucia: Don't go with children
After reading great reviews about Santa Lucia, I went there with my wife and my 1 year old daughter on our one evening in Canmore. After giving us a table (the place wasn't full, it was 5 pm) they ignored us for 20 minutes, they didn't bring us a high chair for the baby and...
Tapas Restaurant & Bodega: Excellent Meals, Nice Location
This was a very nice restaurant within the town, just off the main street. We were offered a table inside or could dine outside on the deck. It was a stormy looking evening but we chose to be brave and took the outside option, assisted by the location of an gas heater next...

Alamo Car Hire - Good Value
On arrival at Calgary we walked outside the terminal and across the road to the Alamo Rent A Car office to collect our vehicle. We could choose from a number of mid size cars and chose the blue PT Cruiser as we had seen them around and thought it would be an ideal change for...
Rocky Mountain Sky Shuttle
Took this from Calgary airport - you'll see their booth in the airport as you leave customs. There's several shuttle companies all next to each other, so it's not hard to get a ride to Canmore/Banff.Very good service.

Mountain Views Everywhere
What we enjoyed most about Canmore was the view of the Rocky Mountains, they were so close. It was easy to drive up to the mountains as they are only minutes away. On the hills there are many beautiful homes and around Canmore there is considerable development of apartments,...
