Located in the southern region of western Canada's province of Alberta, and set in the foothills of the magnificent Rocky Mountains, Calgary holidays take visitors to a bustling, modern city with old school values and many attractions and activities for the energetic holidaymaker. In addition, Calgary is a convenient base from which to visit the nearby Banff and Jasper national parks.
Planning a Calgary Holiday
Calgary is in the Mountain Time Zone (GMT-07:00), and its climate is one of extremes. Calgary winters can be extremely cold, with temperatures regularly falling well into the negative range. However, warm, dry winds routinely blow into the city from over the mountains during the winter months, giving a little respite from the cold. The summer months, June to August, are recommended as the best time to book Calgary holidays, with average temperatures between 20°-34°Celsius. Calgary has its own international airport and is also easily accessible by road from any direction.

Calagary holidays offer a variety of attractions, activities, restaurants and nightlife to tempt active travellers. The Calgary Stampede is a massive, city-wide annual rodeo, exhibition and festival held every July. It claims to be the 'world's largest rodeo', but also offers many other attractions and activities. Calgary is an Olympic city, having hosted the Winter Olympics in 1988, and Canada Olympic Park is possibly the most visible legacy of those Games - truly a one-of-a-kind tourist attraction. Calgary Zoo has been rated as one of the world's best. The 'Saddledome' is Calgary's premier indoor arena, seating almost 20,000 people, and hosts all manner of sporting events and rock concerts, all year round. For a quieter, more cultured experience, The Glenbow Museum is one of Western Canada’s largest museums, with over 8,600 m² of exhibition space showcasing a collection of over a million objects. From outdoor adventures to rodeos, culture and family outings, Calgary has something for everyone.
