Full description

With your smartphone as your audio tour and guide, explore the best of Canmore as you learn about the surrounding mountains, parks, and rivers that have played a role in the town’s history.

Visit Canmore Museum, see the Red Telephone Box, stroll around Friendship Park, and more.

After downloading your tour on your phone (download instructions found on your confirmation voucher), the route begins on the east end of downtown Canmore.

From here, see the Three Sisters Gallery before crossing the railway tracks, where you'll learn about the importance the Canadian Pacific Railway had on Canmore's development.

Follow along a portion of the Bow Valley Trail where your audio guide will point out some sculptures and tell you about some of the mountains you can see to the north.

Learn about some of Canmore's old coal mining equipment that you’ll walk past before making your way to the picturesque Policeman's Creek Trail. As you meander along a portion of the trail, hear about the creek, Bow River, and the Canmore Nordic Center.

After about a kilometer, find yourself in the heart of downtown Canmore, where you'll hear about its history and historic buildings like the Canmore Hotel and the Canmore Miners Union Hall.

Spot Mount Rundle, the Canmore Museum, and Geoscience Center and get a taste of nature as you head through Friendship Park.

Finally, finish up your tour with a short walk through Centennial Park, followed by stops at the famous North-West Mounted Police Barracks and the Big Head sculpture where you'll learn all about how Canmore got its name.
