Set between the imposing Canadian Rockies and the rolling prairies, Calgary is a vibrant young city surrounded by extraordinary natural beauty. The gateway to Banff, Lake Louise, and Jasper, it buzzes with energy while embracing its western heritage.

This down-to-earth city offers uniquely western backdrops with an authentic, working turn-of-the-century cowboy town and top-notch equestrian facilities.

It’s not all about cowboys in Calgary. A wide variety of first class hotels, world class cuisine, sporting events, and entertainment are available. Get outside for hot air ballooning, heli-sighseeing, fly fishing, bobsledding and more.
