Banff or canmore

Jump to last reply

Budget conscious single female traveller (34) looking to stay six nights in either canmore or banff prior to a 14d tour that starts in Calgary and ends in Vancouver (goes via banff).

Question: accomodation in canmore is $400 cheaper than banff for the six nights. I'm interested in mountain biking (cross country rather than crazy up and downhill stuff) as well as sightseeing / walking. I have no issue with public transport and was considering just grabbing a bus to banff or riding the legacy trail on the days I want / need to go to banff. I was otherwise looking to go to moraine (sp) lake for a day trip and don't mind if it's a long day - tour doesn't go here and I've read good reviews about it.

Is canmore a good option or is banff worth the extra money on accomodation due to location?

Appreciate your help,
