Calgary & Banff in Early December

Jump to last reply

My husband's cousin is getting married the first weekend of December in Canmore. We are planning on flying into Calgary (from the US) on Thursday, arriving about lunch time (the wedding is Saturday) and flying back out on either Monday or Tuesday morning (depending on if we think planning an extra day is worth it). We don't ski and we are wondering what there would be to do in the Calgary and Banff areas at this time of year. We're not looking to spend a whole lot of money (we will not be staying at any Fairmonts no mater how beautiful they are), but we're not on a really strict budget either and would like to have reasonable comfort from the accommodations we choose. His cousin has reserved rooms at the Windtower Lodge & Suites in Canmore. We are thinking that might be a good option for the wedding night since it's in walking distance of the wedding venue, but we are set on it if there is somewhere else fabulous and we definitely don't want to spend all our time there. We would like to visit Calgary and Banff. Some things we've thought about doing are the Hot Springs, the Banff Gondola, maybe even hiking around Lake Louise if we have the time. From my research so far, I can't find anything in Calgary that seems very interesting. I would really like to visit the Tyrrell Museum, but it's kind of far on the opposite side of Calgary, so I'm not sure that we will get the chance. And to make it all the more difficult, my husband has celiacs and therefore has to eat gluten free. This will be our first trip together by ourselves since our son was born last year (he's staying with grandparents), so I would really like to take advantage of the opportunity to do adult things and explore & relax together!

So my questions are: What should we do? Where should we stay? And can anyone recommend good gluten free places to eat within the areas we will be? Suggested itineraries are appreciated!
