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
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.
