Oil, beef and cowboys… and so much more. Travellers on cheap flights to Calgary will discover that the city has many surprises. Best known as a winter sports and eco-tourism destination, home of the world-famous Calgary Stampede and an important oil city, it has a thriving arts and restaurant scene, excellent shopping (the lack of PST is a bonus) and cosmopolitan festivals.

Anglers can fly-fish for rainbow and brown trout right in the centre of town or go kayaking, canoeing and rafting. More than 550km of paved pathways take bikers, roller bladers or walkers through parks, city neighbourhoods and along waterways.

Canada Olympic Park is just 15 minutes from downtown and just a few hours’ away is Banff National Park (Canada’s first national park) and Lake Louise, two premier destination spots.

The Stampede, held each summer since 1912, celebrates Calgary’s heritage with rodeo, chuckwagon races, agricultural shows and grandstand show. Western Canada’s largest museum, the Glenbow Museum, is close to the Calgary Tower, international jazz and folk music festivals and even a Dragonboat Festival round out this city’s rich offerings.
