Breathtaking scenery, fresh mountain air and year-round adventure make Canmore a picture-perfect resort town. Just moments from the world-renowned Banff National Park and a pleasant 1.25-hour drive from Calgary International Airport, Canmore is an inviting community blending Rocky Mountain athleticism, small-town charm and cosmopolitan flair.

The area boasts an average of 330 days of sunshine every year – the dazzling inspiration behind Solara’s name. A short ten minute walk from the resort takes you to the heart of downtown Canmore with its award-winning culinary scene – over 35 dining options from casual to five-star – as well as boutiques, galleries and shops.

Three golf courses are within an eight minute drive and endless hiking, biking and walking trails are moments away. Three major ski resorts, including Nakiska, Mt. Norquay and Sunshine are all within a half hour drive and Lake Louise within the hour. The stunning glacier-blue waters of the Bow River wind through the centre of town – perfect for contemplative scenic walks.

Celebrated for its incredible ski season and summers filled with festivals, live music and year-round recreation, Canmore is truly a four-season destination. Solara Resort & Spa is the ideal vacation home to get away from it all.
