Canmore, Alberta: Your Epic Travel Guide For A Winter Trip In Canada

Although there is plenty to do outside around Canmore year-round, winter is my favorite season to visit. Not only does it come with fewer crowds, seeing the snow-covered Rockies in all their glory is breathtaking. This video will show you some of the top winter experiences you can have here, from ice fishing in a wooden hut in the remote Canadian Wilderness to dog sledding with Snowy Owls and the thrill of driving your own team of dogs. For a more active experience, try cross country skiing at the Canmore Nordic Center Provincial Park, the site of the 1988 Winter Olympics. Check out town, too, where you could easily spend an afternoon shopping in boutiques, bookstores, and shops that carry everything from outdoor gear to home goods. It's also a place that offers tons of great dining options. A town favorite is Grizzly Paw Brewing Company. For an overnight stay, check out Solara Resort and Spa, about five minutes from town.

My passion for travel was unlocked when I spent some years living across Europe and South America. I've never been one to shy away from a new adventure, be it swimming with pigs in the Bahamas, bird watching in the Galapagos or Heli-Hiking in British Columbia. And while I used to mostly travel solo, I now like to hit the road with my 4-year-old son, 1-year-old-daughter and husband in tow. The best part of travel to me now is getting to see the world through their eyes. Whether they are petting goats during an Oregon farm stay or making their very own pizza in Idaho, their enthusiasm and joy never fails to remind me of why I love travel.
