Minutes from adventure in an unspoiled mountain playground, Calgary is clean and safe; a big city without big city problems.

Get away to a world of adventure and freedom. Spring ski in the high country and golf in green valleys on the same day. Walk, jog or bike along winding paths that follow sparkling rivers. Float over the city in a hot air balloon on a warm summer morning. Go trail riding, heli-hiking, fishing, touring or whitewater rafting under bright blue skies.

Throughout the year, shopping, theatre, galleries, symphony, ballet, concerts and dazzling nightlife are close at hand. Chase a dragon through Chinatown. Gasp at the almost-touchable images of a giant-screen movie. Be a kid again at a children's festival, or jump to jive at a jazz festival.
Explore prairie history at a pioneer settlement, museum or fort. Spend a day at the zoo or an international-calibre equestrian facility. Tour Winter Olympic sites. Try your luck at a casino. Cheer on professional hockey, football and baseball teams.

Relax at mountain resorts in Kananaskis Country, Canmore and Banff National Park. Travel back in time at a world-famous dinosaur museum or peer over a cliff at an ancient buffalo hunting ground.
