Gateway to the Rockies

The Western spirit that helped build Calgary is very much alive and well. You hear it in the music. You see it in the streets. You experience it every July at the world-famous Calgary Stampede. And you feel it in the entrepreneurial attitude. It’s why Calgary has Canada’s highest per capita head office and small business concentration in Canada. (sourceicons.external-link-icon)

To and from Calgary

Fly here directly from London, Frankfurt, most western US hubs and almost anywhere in Canada. Once here, you’re a short jaunt from Banff, Canada’s most visited national park. Find inspiration looking down at the world from the top of the Rocky Mountains and find calm in the hot springs on the trek down or by the shores of magnificent Lake Louise. 

In Calgary

Calgary mixes green spaces, music districts and avant-garde architecture next to legacy brick buildings and an exploding culinary scene. To experience another side of Calgary, visit Blackfoot Crossing Historical Park to immerse yourself in the traditions of the four Blackfoot Nations, the Tsuut’ina Nation, the Stoney Nakoda Nation and the Métis Indigenous Peoples who have lived here for centuries.
