What are the best things to do in Calgary?

Banff National Park

Banff is one of Canada’s most famous national parks, and you can visit by booking cheap flights to Calgary. It holds the title as Canada’s oldest national park and covers more than 6,600 square kilometres to the west of the city. The Rocky Mountains pass through Banff National Park, so there are some incredible hiking trails and mountain peaks to explore. Make the most of your time in Banff by spending at least two full days there while visiting Canada on flights to Calgary. Must-see landmarks within the national park include Lake Louise, Icefields Parkway, and Johnston Canyon.

Calgary Tower

Calgary Tower is 190 metres (626 feet) tall and stands out against the other buildings of central Calgary. There is an observation deck on top where you can enjoy uninterrupted views over the city and the distant peaks of the Rocky Mountains. A glass floor around the observation deck also makes for a thrilling way to see the city below you while you’re visiting Alberta on flights to Calgary. Look up at the Calgary Tower in the evenings, as an LED light show illuminates the tower each night.

Glenbow Museum

The Glenbow is one of the many museums you can visit while holidaying on flights to Calgary. It explores the history of Alberta through a series of artwork. Spend a couple hours at the Glenbow Museum when you book return flights to Calgary to view more than 33,000 pieces that make up its collection. Permanent exhibits delve into the history and culture of Canada’s First Nations, the industrial transformation of Alberta, and contemporary paintings and photos by local artists. The Glenbow Museum also features rotating exhibits that touch on different aspects of life in the Canadian province of Alberta.
