Last weekend, I took a trip to the enchanting town of Canmore. It is only over an hour drive from Calgary. Believe it or not, it is a popular destination to spend a day or a weekend. My trip was fueled with numerous experiences. Here are some of the great things to do when you are in Canmore.
- Enjoy the view from Ha Ling Peak
Avail this trail to get a visual treat. It is frequented by tourists and locals alike. I can say this was the best hikes that you will find in Canmore. It will take you 3-4 hours reach the summit. Well, the view just awed me. Even though people consider this an easy hike, personal experience tells me it is a bit inclined to challenging. Hike early morning to have the best experience.
- Stop over at Rocky Mountain Soap Company
Want to buy some natural products? Do not miss out on Rocky Mountain Soap Company, the flagship store. You can take a tour of this workshop. The best part about this tour is you are going to receive a $20 gift card for an adult and $5 for a child. So, get ready to fill your bathroom with this amazing scented soap.
- Tour the Wild Life Distillery
The crafts spirit from the Wild Life Distillery is great. The distillery uses local grains and mountain water for producing alcohol. Are you a spirit-lover, opt for the tour just by paying nine dollars. What’s great if you even get to taste the samples before you carry some of them home?
- Stroll around the Policeman’s Creek Boardwalk
Take a walk around the easy path of Policeman’s Creek Boardwalk to enjoy the scenic beauty. The path running along the river will take you to the Spring Creek Community. It is 3.9 kilometers long and is just the perfect spot to enjoy with your family.
