Canada

Alberta's largest city, and third largest municipality  in Canada (after Toronto and Montreal), Calgary is young, vibrant and creative! Perfect gateway to the Canadian Rockies, rich in cultural institutions,  opera,  ballet companies, symphony orchestra  and several theatre companies has so much to offer all year around!

Taking a day tour to iconic locations like Lake Louise may be at the top of your  list. One of the most photographed locations in the world, Lake Louise, with its emerald green water and rugged peaks, is just two hours from Calgary. Canoe on the lake in the summer, enjoy ice skating and ice sculptures in the winter, beat the crowds and visit early in the morning or during the week for an uninterrupted view of the lake.

Soaking in the Banff Upper Hot Springs  has been a favourite activity for over a century. Located an hour and a half from Calgary, you can relax in the hot mineral waters at 1,585 metres of elevation in the highest operating hot spring in Canada. This natural wonder is equipped with a café, gift shop, picnic sites, and walking trails for a family friendly day in the mountains. 

Discover the remarkable terrain and unique experiences that await in the Canadian Badlands.  Explore Cypress Hills Provincial Park and Waterton Lakes National Park and discover 6000 years of history at Head-Smashed in Buffalo Jump, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
