Canadian Culture Culture, Heritage & Arts

Want the quintessential Canadian experience? Start by hiking to a striking blue glacier lake with a picnic lunch of smoked trout and butter tarts. Then learn to ice skate while kids who just learned to walk do circles around you. And make sure to tell everyone about that one time you went camping and saw a grizzly bear and a moose hanging out. • Only here: Watch a re-enactment of early horseback prowess with Fort Macleod’s Northwest Mounted Police Musical Ride. • Try it: There’s no experience required to get super-Canadian in an Alberta winter. Snowshoe nearly anywhere in the province, road trip through glacier country and finish with a game meat charcuterie board and local brew by a crackling fire. 

Feeling invigorated and inspired by the Calgary Made It package at Ramada Plaza Calgary Downtown. Ideas to explore Calgary beyond what you may have come to expect. Reminded that travel doesn’t have to take you across the world to show you something new, to energize you, to give you a new experience.
