  • Calgary Tower
    In 1988, the top of the Calgary Tower was on fire. Nobody panicked, though, and no one tried to put out the flames. If they had, and succeeded, it would have been to the disappointment of athletes and spectators the world over, because that flame burned in honour of Canada’s first Winter Olympic Games. At 191 metres above the city, the light that fire produced—flickering from a gas-fired cauldron—served to unite the city around the games, to honour the spirit of sportsmanship, and to safeguard the event from Mothra attacks. Today, visitors can see the city from just below where that torch burned. After a 63-second elevator ride to the top, guests can explore the observation deck, take a complimentary tour, and peer from high-powered binoculars at the Rocky Mountains, foothills, and prairies. Then they can step out onto the glass floor and stare down at the Olympic Plaza, the Glenbow Museum, and the bald spots on park monuments. Yet the tower’s height isn’t its only draw. From the ground up, it strives to showcase the best of the city. At the base, the visitor information centre furnishes newcomers with city guides that point to popular attractions, and at 155 metres, the elegant Sky 360 restaurant fans romantic sparks as it completes its 360-degree rotation every hour.

  • Rockies Heli Tours Canada Inc.
    Blades humming, the helicopter from Rockies Heli Tours rises up from the Icefield Adventure Base and soars away over the valley, crossing skies hung between tall mountain peaks. Rising to 9,500 feet, trips take tour-goers over the Cline Pass to breathtaking views of six glaciers, a 900-foot waterfall, and mountain lakes. Passengers watch all of these breathtaking panoramas glide smoothly by underneath during their 20-minute flight, content to let their expert pilot guide them on a leisurely loop before returning to base. Guests will land for a one-hour exploration stop, taking a wilderness walk through an old growth forest that leads up to Twin Falls before flying away again.

  • Holiday on Horseback
    Take a minute to soak in your surroundings. Take several, in fact, since the view stretches for miles. Evergreen trees blanket the lowlands of Banff National Park, hugging the bases of mountains whose snow-dusted peaks scratch the itchy bellies of passing clouds. No one is around for miles—save for your horse, the guide leading you up the mountainside, and your fellow riders. Moments like these have been Banff Trail Riders's bread, butter, and baked beans for more than 50 years. Their guides lead horseback trips deep into the backcountry of Banff National Park. The journeys can last anywhere from a couple of hours to days on end, as riders cross streams and climb the steep terrain of the Canadian Rockies. There are ample opportunities to pause along the way and watch for wildlife. Many rides incorporate cowboy-style cookouts, during which steaks sizzle on the barbecue. Games of horseshoes help pass the time and give the horses a chance to walk around in just their socks. One such trip with Banff Trail Riders is enough to transform anyone into a cowboy or cowgirl. The only things missing are boots, hats, and maybe a saddle. Luckily, these goods fill the racks and shelves of the onsite Trail Rider Store.

  • Bow Habitat Station
    Four Things to Learn at Bow Habitat Station Bow Habitat Station's indoor and outdoor attractions educate families about Alberta’s natural resources. Here are four things you can learn during a day here: 1. What’s an invertebrate? At the 21-acre Interpretive Wetland, you’ll get up close to all sorts of spine-free creatures as you scoop them up with nets and buckets, and learn to identify them without taking their fingerprints. 2. Could I survive in the wilderness? Cast a line at the trout pond, and find out how skilled you are with a fishing rod. All caught fish must be released, so keep the grilling gear at home. An Alberta sport fishing license is required for ages 16–64 but kids under 16 can fish without a license. 3. Do beavers get cable? In the Discovery Centre, there are five galleries of hands-on exhibits. You can peek at different species of fish, watch a film about aquatic ecosystems, and crouch inside a beaver’s lodge. 4. What do rainbow trout do all day? On a fish hatchery tour you’ll learn about the trout's whole life cycle, from the moment they bust out of their eggs until they wriggle away as a full-grown adult. The best part is, visitors get to feed them, too.

  • River Valley Adventures - Calgary

Located just behind the Talisman Centre, tour guides at this new location boast almost 10 years of experience and lead guests on Calgary's first segway tour. Back at the Edmonton location, visitors use rental snowshoes, Rocky Mountain Bicycles mountain bikes, or purchases from the shop’s stock of Segways to peruse the web of trails; alternatively, they can rent sporting equipment such as badminton sets, croquet sets, and fishing gear, accompanied by fishing licences more valid than gluing a fishing rod to your forehead. An onsite café brews pots of Intelligentsia and sates adventurers’ appetites with snacks such as acclaimed peanut-butter granola bars.
