About Cochrane Alberta
Located in the heart of Alberta cattle country and the Cowboy Trail, Cochrane is a recreation playground for families, adventure enthusiasts and those seeking rest and relaxation in a beautiful natural setting. A fast-growing community with friendly people and abundant natural resources, Cochrane is situated at the base of the Big Hill in the Bow River Valley, 20 minutes from Calgary and less than an hour from Banff. With spectacular vistas of the rolling foothills and majestic Rocky Mountains, Cochrane combines a proud western heritage with all the modern conveniences required for a great vacation.
Cochrane offers visitors four seasons of fun – book a tee time on one of our spectacular golf courses or grab a book and enjoy “tea time” in Cochrane’s eclectic coffee shops. Soar like our local eagles while hang gliding or float lazily down the Bow River with your fishing rod in hand. Whether you want to “rough it” at our fully modernized campgrounds, stay at a conveniently located hotel or sample a bed and breakfast, Cochrane provides a full range of accommodation options to visitors. For those seeking the occasional dose of the big city, Calgary’s attractions are less than 30 minutes away. Knowing you can return to the peaceful, natural setting of Cochrane, complete with all services and amenities is your reward at the end of the day.
Cochrane is a great choice for ski fanatics as well. Less expensive than the ski towns up the highway and much closer to the international airport, you can stay in Cochrane and be on the slopes or cross-country trails in an hour. Other outdoor enthusiasts will find a diverse array of experiences right here in Cochrane – from running events to rodeos, swimming to sun worshipping – its all at your doorstep.
The ranching and western heritage is evident on Cochrane’s downtown district and among the many cowboys who live and work in the area. A stroll down Main Street offers a unique blend of quaint shops, boutiques, dining establishments and the most famous ice cream in Alberta. Cochrane is also home to a diverse and established arts community. A number of recognized artisans, musicians and writers call Cochrane home and their influence is visible in the number and range of arts and cultural events that take place in Cochrane throughout the year. So, come to Cochrane and be prepared for a warm, western welcome. It’s a great place for a holiday and a great place to live.
