Overview

Gorgeous mountain views and activities
No on-site dining venue
If you've come to Canmore, Alberta, for the heart-pumping outdoor pursuits, Solara Resort & Spa provides a convenient home base. The resort, situated about 20 miles southeast of Banff National Park, plays off of the area's best asset: the Canadian Rockies. Solara puts you within an hour's drive of Mount Norquay, Sunshine Village and Lake Louise. After working up a sweat hitting the slopes or hiking the trails, head to One Wellness and Spa. Recent visitors say the spa provides soothing relief for sore muscles. For more relaxation, kick back in your room. Each of the one-, two- and three-bedroom suites features a cozy fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen and a spacious bathroom with a jet massage shower. Some of the suites also boast balconies appointed with electric grills, but if you're not in the mood to cook, you'll find a handful of restaurants and cafes in Canmore (less than a mile north). Or, you can head to the property's sister resort, Grande Rockies Resort, which has its own on-site eatery.
