Tour Overview

A seamless mix of dynamic, modern and good ol’ fashioned western fun, Calgary is quintessential Canada. But all bets are off each summer when this sophisticated metropolis plays host to boisterous rip-roaring rodeo in the ‘Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth’, the Calgary Stampede. After witnessing the festivities, trade in your cowboy boots for walking boots as you trek through some of the most incredible scenery Canada has to offer in Banff, Jasper and the Rockies. If you're looking for a real taste of Canadian cowboy culture, our Calgary Stampede holiday is a great choice.
