Famous for the Calgary Stampede, Calgary will get you energized and excited. As Canada's first city to host the Winter Olympic Games, the city has the infrastructure of a large metropolis and boasts the friendly nature of a smaller community. Between the Rockies to the west and rolling plains stretching out across the east, Calgary is a genuinely scenic city.
It's also close to favourite Western Canadian destinations like Vancouver, Banff, and Canmore, all within a drivable distance. These magnificent cities along with Calgary are also great destinations for camping and glamping. You can experience the outdoors your way at camping sites with full shower and power facilities, or rough it in lesser-serviced regions. Try your hand at fishing for trout in Bow River, or enjoy a relaxing spa day at any of the city's world-class hotels.
