Calgary

The Gateway to the Rocky Mountains!

The international gateway to the Rocky Mountains, Calgary is the perfect blend of a big Canadian city and beautiful scenery. It is characterized by its skyline with the Rocky Mountains in the background and the Bow River running through the city. Calgary is one of Canada’s most affordable big cities in Canada and boasts a lot of tourist attractions. You can go to the Calgary Tower for a beautiful view of the city, or go to Calgary Zoo, or experience the past at Heritage Park. You can also easily go on a bus tour to Banff, Lake Louise or Jasper to see stunning lakes, mountains and glaciers, and maybe even a bear or a moose. Whatever you are looking for, Calgary is the place where you can find it.

This glacial activity occurred during the Tertiary and Quaternary periods where mile-thick ice layers retreated 10,000 years ago, scraping the surface and leaving behind valuable sedimentary deposits along its borders. Additional mountain river erosion and flooding left behind nutrient and mineral rich soils which today still form the foundation of the Okanagan’s successful agricultural economy.
