Explore the Beauty of Calgary

Holidays in Calgary are ideal for those who love nature and sport, and for enthusiasts of western history and cowboy culture. There is also a growing film community in Calgary, which will excite and entice fans of cinema and television.

Calgary is a glorious, beautiful city full of western prairie history and pride situated on the banks of the Bow River and very close to the breathtaking Rocky Mountains. Calgary Canada embraces both historical and economic significance as the key administrative location for the Canadian oil industry, and artistic growth making it a dynamic and friendly city keen to welcome any visitors. One of the great aspects of finding yourself in Calgary is the abundance of natural surroundings and proximity to some of the most spectacular natural mountain parks in the world.

When to go to Calgary

Calgary takes pride in its sporting legacy. As the host of the 1988 Olympic Winter Games, Calgary features the Canada Olympic Park: a multi-purpose athletic facility which offers exciting skiing, snowboarding, and bobsleigh adventures in the winter, or extreme mountain biking trails and a daredevil zip line in the summer. Calgary is also a reasonable distance from Banff, home to the majestic Banff National Park and the Banff Centre for Arts, which brings creative & media professionals from all over North America every year.

A holiday to Calgary is great especially during the ten days that make up the Calgary Stampede. The Stampede is Calgary’s most popular event and best known attraction. It brings more than a million visitors every year, and unites the city with a large parade, world-class rodeo events, live music, and agricultural exhibits. Even the business folk of Calgary put aside their suits, break out the cowboy hats and boots and come down to the exhibition centre to enjoy the cowboy spirit that still defines much of Calgary today.
