Perhaps it’s the diverse and hospitable population, or the surrounding landscapes that are the epitome of breathtaking, or maybe it’s the fact that Calgary gets more days of sunshine per year than any other Canadian city; whatever the reason, the minute you step foot in it, you’ll know why visitors fall in love with “The Heart of the New West.”
With the breathtaking Rocky Mountains as its backdrop and the wooden houses of the surrounding area that recall its pioneering origins, the chic urban city of Calgary seems almost too good to exist. Spend your days exploring the area’s many attractions including a vibrant arts community, unique boutiques and antique stores, and the many cafes that offer freshly baked goodies. Spend your evenings relaxing in accommodations that offer distinctive amenities in elegant surroundings.
With your private guide and driver enjoy a tour of Calgary’s executive homes, from those built at the turn of the century to modern ranch style homes in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies. Continue on to the Royal Tyrrell Museum, world renowned for its work in palaeontology, and behold the 40 mounted dinosaur skeletons and over 125,000 fossil specimens. Drive the Hoodoo Trail to see Hoodoos, 5 to 7 meter sandstone pillars that stand on a base of shale capped by a large stone. And, just when you think you’ve seen unrivaled natural beauty, make your way to the Alberta foothills to gaze upon the wild horses of the region, a sight so thrilling you’ll never forget it.
