Imagine waking up in the morning with eagles soaring high into the incredible blue skies outside your window and the smell of fresh buttermilk pancakes gently wafting into the fresh air. With peaks that reach almost three thousand meters into the air, hundreds of kilometres of trails within easy reach - including 71 km within the town limits - and an incredible array of Alpine activities on offer throughout the year, Canmore is a real hidden gem: a small town located on the edge of the Banff national park and just an hour away from Calgary. Take an English course in Canmore with ESL and enjoy the best of wild Canada on your doorstep.
After the discovery of hot springs, Banff National Park was declared a protected area in 1885. Our partner language school in Canmore is located around 20 minutes from the town of Banff at an elevation of 1309 metres. The school focuses on small classes, with a maximum of ten students in a group. This personal touch is typical of Canmore, which is warm and welcoming to guests from all over the world but still manages to feel somehow “off the tourist trail”. The local facilities are really top class, with five major ski resorts, the world class Canmore Nordic Centre, climbing, hiking, scrambling, mountain biking, canoeing, kayaking, rafting and much more within easy reach.
