Unique Fall Activities in Canmore

posted by: BEST WESTERN PLUS Pocaterra Inn on: October 14, 2014 04:33:19 PM
Fall is an incredibly pleasant season in Canmore with the changing colours of the forest and the first hints of winter felt in the crispness of the air.  The BEST WESTERN PLUS Pocaterra Inn is a great place to curl up for the fall season.  Our indoor hot sauna and steam room is a perfect place to stay warm as the weather begins to chill.  And if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, check out a few of these unique fall outdoor attractions in Canmore.

Larch Hikes

The larch is a unique form of tree, existing in between the classifications of deciduous and coniferous.  Although it has the distinctive ‘needle’ leaves of a coniferous tree, it behaves more like a coniferous, each fall shedding its needles in a spectacular display of fall colours.  The area around Canmore is a great place to experience this marvel of nature: click here to view a complete list of hikes that give spectacular views of the larch tree.

Moose Viewing

The moose is a uniquely Canadian creature.  Strange looking and docile, these legendary forest dwellers are an impressive sight to behold in their natural environment.  In contrast to bears, which begin to hibernate in the fall season, moose are incredibly active foraging for food before the onset of the winter season.  The best way to get up close and personal with these animals is to take a tour with Canadian Rockies Adventures  right here in Canmore. 

Go Caving!

The Bow Valley is home to many natural cave sites with opportunities to view twisting passages, stalactites & stalagmites, animal bones and fossils and more!  One of the best ways to experience the caves around our city is to join Canmore Cave Tours on their signature tour under nearby Grotto Mountain.  You’ll tour this impressive 4km long cave which was created by the meltwaters of ancient glaciers with knowledgeable and safe guides. 
Canmore Alberta is an outdoor person’s paradise.  If you’re looking for a great hotel in Canmore this fall, book a room at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Pocaterra Inn.  We look forward to welcoming you today.
