Calgary is quick to charm and makes for a lovely layover before exploring Canada’s wilderness. Touch down after a long flight and a local guide will show you the highlights, notably Calgary’s laid-back atmosphere.
Explore the city on foot by crossing the nearby Peace Bridge and rove along the walking trails in Prince’s Island Park before sitting by the river and watching the sunset.
Then head into downtown and see how Calgary got the nickname “Stampede City”. Visit the iconic Bow Building with its public art and sample the city’s excellent restaurants. Alberta is known for its fine cattle, so you will want to try the steak!
