Hello our adventurous friends,
we created an ultimate adventure getaway to Canmore for you. Many tourists and also locals spend their weekends in Banff or Jasper, where they realize just how crowded and expensive it is to stay there and do fun activities. That's why we checked out Canmore, only one and a half hours away from Calgary and half an hour away from Banff. Here you will find impressive mountain landscape offering limitless outdoor activity across an expanse of provincial parks, wildland reserves, emerald green waterways, unspoiled wilderness and snow-capped mountain peaks. Here is an overview of the fun things we did that weekend, with more detailed blog posts to come for the accommodation and activities.

The Grande Rockies Resort is situated in the Bow Valley of the Canadian Rockies right in the alpine village of Canmore and is ideal for families, golf and ski enthusiasts.
