Canmore Activities, Attractions & Events That We Love

Canmore is a quirky little town snuggled in the Canadian Rockies with access to countless different activities from relaxing to extreme sporting. The Coast Canmore Hotel and Conference Centre sits at an ideal location; walking distance to downtown Canmore and within driving distance to the great outdoors of Kananaskis. Year round there are countless things to do in Canmore, like exploring caves with the family on a tour with Canmore Cave Tours. Take in the views with nearby hikes such as Grotto Canyon and Grassi Lakes. These hikes are also pet friendly, just like our hotel which is one of the few pet friendly hotels in Canmore. The Coast Canmore Hotel is also a drop off center for famous site tours just outside of Canmore like the Banff Gondola, Columbia Ice Fields, and Lake Minnewanka. If you’re looking for indoor activities in Canmore, you can always experience Canmore’s local arts and culture through the Art Place or do a brewery tour at the local Grizzly Paw Brewery, located right next to our Canmore hotel. The Rocky Mountain Soap Co. also does factory tours about how their products are made sustainably and locally. Don’t waste any time during the summer season, there are tons of Canmore summer activities. Soak up the sun while you’re horseback riding at Boundary Ranch, on a whitewater rafting tour with the Canmore River Adventures company or doing some outdoor climbing at Grassi Lakes. You won’t have enough time in the day to enjoy all of the things to do in Canmore in winter, but don’t miss out on the dog sledding with Snowy Owl Dog Sled Tours or ice fishing with Wapiti Sports & Outfitters. Visit the Canmore Nordic Centre to go snowshoeing, fat biking, tobogganing, or cross country skiing. If you forget any of your sporting equipment for summer or winter, visit Gear Up, they will make sure you are equipped with mountain bikes, skis, snowboards, snowshoes, and so much more! Don’t forget to visit Canmore’s local coffee shops like Beamers or the Rocky Mountain Bagel Co. or sit down at the Table Food & Drink or The Blake for a nice dinner out. There are endless things to do in Canmore and all the hidden gems are waiting to be found.
