The town of Canmore.

How to get there?

The answer seems obvious, but the fastest and easiest way does not always turn out to be the best. Do not get tempted by the highway, as it will cause you to lose a lot. The highway is better suited for your return trip.

Viewpoints at little effort

Canmore offers great views in every direction. Why not make them even better? One of these spots is the viewing point near Whitemans Pond. If you drove through Kananaskis Country you can stop there at the end of your drive, otherwise it is around 7km from the centre of Canmore.
