3 DESTINATIONS THAT CAPTURE THE MAJESTY OF THE LANDSCAPE
Canmore, Alberta Canmore is a relatively small resort town tucked away in one of the most picturesque valleys in the Canadian Rockies, right on the Bow River. It sits between Mount Rundle and Mount Townsend and is due south from Lake Minnewanka — it’s also not far from Banff. Canmore has just about every summertime alpine activity you can think of: camping, fishing, rafting, canoeing, horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking, swimming, boating, golfing. You can always just sit by the river, taking in the natural scenery from the Bow River Campground. There’s even a nearby cave system to explore — see CanmoreCaveTours.com for more info. When you want to recharge or just get away from it all, Canmore is a destination to add to your summer travel list. Drumheller, Alberta Another great destination in Alberta, Drumheller is much farther east in the Great Plains, though the area isn’t as flat as much of the Plains. Drumheller sits on the Red Deer River, which has carved out the landscape with canyons and gullies. While there is excellent hiking around Drumheller, the real attraction is the Royal Tyrrell Museum.
The Royal Tyrrell Museum is one of the best palaeontological museums in North America — with the single, largest collection of dinosaur fossils in the world. Spend a day exploring ancient history and learning
all about dinosaurs. The museum hosts impressive specimens of Tyrannosaurus rex, Albertosaurus, Stegosaurus, and Triceratops, just to name a few. Kelowna, BC Much closer to home, Kelowna makes a great day trip or weekend getaway. These days, Kelowna has become a destination for wine lovers. The hills surrounding Kelowna are home to a number of vineyards and wineries, and it’s established itself as the heart of Canadian wine country. Of course, there’s much more to do in Kelowna than sip wine. The boating on Okanagan Lake is phenomenal. With well over 100 kilometres to explore, it’s easy to spend an entire day on the lake fishing or just kicking back and enjoying the weather.
