Well trained dogs and their leaders teach you all you need to know to experience first hand the joy of traveling ground level through powder snow the way the first Canadian travelers saw the snow bound lands.

Driving Distances from the Inn

Calgary Airport 90 minutes - beautiful drive
Canmore down town 5 minutes drive time
Banff National Park Gates 5 minutes
Banff down town  15 minutes
Kananaskis Country  20 minutes
Lake Louise  45 minutes
Lake Moraine  1 hour
Radium  1 hour 30 minutes
Columbian Icefields 1 hour 30 minutes
Jasper   3 hours
(see suggestion below concerning visiting Jasper)

Jasper ~ To make a straight drive to Jasper Townsite would take 3 hours from Canmore to Jasper (no stopping). When I travelled the "Ice Fields Parkway road" to Jasper with my parents sightseeing it took us 6 hours as we included a stop at Peyto Lake, the Columbian Icefields and several other scenic spots to view spectacular waterfalls. 

The beauty of this particular road is that there are so many nice spot to stop, to not do so would be a shame. We usually recommend that if you feel strongly about going the whole way to Jasper then you should arrange overnight accommodation in Jasper Town. 

However a great day trip would be to drive from Canmore to the Columbian Icefields, stopping to take the snow coach onto the Athabasca Glacier and also to take a beautiful walk to Peyto Lake for a picnic. The driving time for this day trip would be 1.5 hours each way (plus stopping/sightseeing time). 

Radium ~ Another beautiful drive would be to drive on 95 to Radium Hot Springs and take a swim in the mineral pools at Radium.

We hope this information helps with your planning and will be very happy to answer any questions you may have concerning the area or our inn.
