Canmore-Kananaskis Canadian Rockies

Kananaskis is a stunningly beautiful valley of the Canadian Rockies. Canmore is a stunningly charming mountain town. Together, they make for a stunningly awesome duo filled with adventure, explorations and amazing food, among other amazing things. ● Think: an organic brunch in the morning, then screaming down white water in a raft that afternoon. Or, a day of world-class cross-country skiing before dinner, then drinks and relaxation at the Kananaskis Nordic Spa. ● Eat it: Whole grains or gluten-free, patio beers or organic coffee, Canmore’s got it – always in constant view of the Canadian Rockies. ● Do it: Some of the best hikes in the Canadian Rockies, both winter and summer, without the crowds.
