Visit Calgary

Real cowboys and much more

Skyscrapers compete with the Rockies in this booming icon of the Canadian Wild West. Check out the scenery from the 191-metre-high Calgary Tower, visit Canada's Sports Hall of Fame and the Olympic Stadium that hosted the 1988 Winter Games. Feed your fascination with cowboys at the Heritage Park Historical Village and the Calgary Stampede, the massive annual rodeo and chuck wagon festival that draws thousands of visitors every year to its cultural exhibits and chuck wagon races. 

Big business booms in Calgary and yet it still retains its small-town friendly atmosphere. The city has many family attractions; step back in time on steam train rides through the stunning Alberta scenery, or visit Calaway Park, Western Canada’s largest family amusement park. Discover Fort Calgary to see the iconic scarlet coats of the Canadian Mounties, and visit the museum to see how the Fort first started in 1875.
