Stampede City
Known as the "Stampede City" thanks to its world-famous annual rodeo, Calgary remains a tale of two cities. While the city's western side features the mighty Rockies as a backdrop, its inner core boasts a modern skyline of concrete-and-steel buildings housing the headquarters of some of Canada's biggest corporations. A tour of Calgary lets you discover a cosmopolitan urban center with a traditional western soul, a tourism hub conveniently placed to offer quick access to some of the country's biggest national parks. In a city that hosted the 1988 Winter Olympics, your Calgary holiday can also include visits to outstanding ski slopes and a vast network of cross-country trails located just an hour's drive outside the city. Plan a trip to Canada easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
