Sightseeing & Adventure
Weather you're "living life on the edge" a outdoor adventurer or a nature lover looking for a quite spot to explore, Calgary and area has a special place just for you.
Cycle Calgary's miles of bike and pedestrian pathways. Around the next bend could be an historic theme park, a lake for swimming (within city limits), a golf course, a tennis court or a bird sanctuary. View the city and surrounding area from the breezy heights of a hot air balloon.
Get into the swing of things. Try a game of golf at one of more than 40 challenging and rewarding courses in and around Calgary.
Just a short drive from Calgary, the majesty of the Canadian Rockies waits for you. Hang on for your life during a rough and tumble whitewater rafting trip; hike, bike or ski along endless trails; canoe on a pristine mountain lake; or fish on the Bow River, a world famous destination for anglers.
Hop on board a helicopter for a sightseeing tour or a trip into the backcountry. Carve your way down slopes of untouched powder or hike over a flower-filled mountain meadow.
Rent a motor home, pack your gear and set up camp at nearby campgrounds. Or book a rail tour and see the Canadian Rockies from Calgary to Vancouver. Watch wild life such as mountain sheep and goats, elk, moose and bears roam over their natural habitat.
Every season offers visitors something new in Calgary and area. You'll never run out of things to do, and there's always more to see.
