Calgary Southern Alberta

Set dramatically between prairies and peaks, Calgary is a chic Canadian metropolis, buzzing with innovative energy while embracing its rich western heritage. Immerse yourself in that Wild West spirit at the annual Calgary Stampede, a 10 day whoop-up embraced by the whole city. Surrounded by incomparable natural beauty, this is a place where you can explore the magic of the Canadian Rockies or the mystery of the badlands by day and be back in time for dinner. Calgary’s cultural scene sizzles with its spectrum of arts and performing arts and there’s serious magic to be found in the city’s ever-evolving culinary scene.
