What to do in Calgary
Calgary is the biggest city in Alberta, and it’s your entry point to the Banff, Jasper, and the Rocky Mountains of Canada. The city is buzzing with energy while surrounded by gorgeous landscape wherever you look. So if you want to see the true beauty of Canada, Calgary is a great place to start.
A great way to begin your trip is visiting Calgary Tower, where you can see amazing views over the city and its natural wonders.
Experience the local culture and head to the exciting Stampede Grounds so you can catch a hockey game at the Scotiabank Saddledome or watch the world-famous Calgary Stampede. For a more relaxing time, enjoy your lunch, go ride a bicycle, and wander around the lovely Olympic Plaza.
Nearby, you can spend an arvo at Canada's Sports Hall of Fame. But if art, culture, and history are what you’re looking for, the Glenbow Museum is your best choice. Are you travelling with kids? Go to the interactive TELUS Spark science centre. Then bring your family to the world-class Calgary Zoo and say hello to over 1,000 animals from around the world. It also has a vibrant Botanical Garden for endless photo ops too.
For more nature, you’ll find countless species of birds and plants at the lush Inglewood Bird Sanctuary and Nature Centre. Have an outdoor adventure and go mountain biking, horseback riding, and more at Fish Creek Provincial Park.
Out of town, bring your family to the massive Calaway Park. Then hop on the Banff Gondola and be amazed by the scenery of the extraordinary Banff National Park. Feel the thrill of crossing the Glacier Skywalk in Jasper National Park or paddle through the majestic Maligne Lake. And if you’re visiting during winter, enjoy skiing in Marmot Basin.
