Between its rich oil industry history, wild rodeo roots and modern metropolis, the cosmopolitan city of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, proves a top destination for travelers.

Outdoorsy families have their work cut out for them with the extensive natural beauty, vast parks, lakes and nature-driven activities. Take to the woods hiking, biking and exploring with a nature guide, or stroll through town and take in the quaint setting amid a grand landscape.

Kids and Up

Banff Lake Cruise

Get out on the water exploring Lake Minnewanka on the Banff Boat Cruise. The hour-long ride showcases impressive mountain ranges, wildlife and a bit of folklore from the guide.

Calgary Stampede

With a history steeped in rodeos and corrals, Calgary Stampede is a must-visit destination. Plan your visit during the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth, July 6–15, and experience First Nation culture, chuck wagon races and, of course, the rodeo.
