Calgary, the entry point into the great Rocky Mountain vacation area, is a modern city with an impressive skyline and lively social scene, but itÃ¢??s no ordinary metropolis. Bordered by rolling foothills, itÃ¢??s just an hour away from the Rockies. YouÃ¢??d be hard-pressed to find anything like the annual Calgary Stampede in July and its chuck wagon races, rodeos, square dancing, amusement rides and exhibits. Take one of our excursions and learn about the Blackfoot tribe and the unique way they used to hunt bison in prehistoric times in this area.
