Calgary climate

Calgary’s winters are fiercely cold, as are most inland Canadian cities. Temperatures in the months of December, January and February hover well below freezing. The Chinook, a hot, thawing wind that hits southern Alberta from the Canadian Rockies may relieve those booking flights to Calgary in the wintertime. With average temperatures basking in the 70s, it’s no wonder that summer is the most popular season for booking Calgary flights. Fall and spring bring about cooler, comfortable weather and little rainfall.

Getting around Calgary

Calgary has a bus system and a light-rail system, the C-Train, running through the city. You can transfer between the two easily, and the C-Train is free anywhere downtown. If you want to rent a car, you can find any of the car rental companies at the airport or around town. Taxis are also convenient, and reasonably priced. Be careful if you decide to walk. East-west blocks are very long, and it can take you longer than you’d expect. To help pedestrians get around, the city has the “Plus-15” system, which is a series of enclosed walkways connecting downtown buildings above street level. You can access the walkways at streets marked with a “+15.”

Calgary Travel Information

  • Though downtown Calgary is all about business and commerce, the neighborhoods just outside the downtown core are where you’ll find the best galleries, nightlife, restaurants and museums. Stretch your legs after your Calgary flight with a leisurely stroll through the streets of Kensington, Calgary’s “urban village”. Kensington is packed with funky boutiques and quaint cafes, and the neighborhood hosts Calgary’s Sun and Salsa festival every July. If rowdy bars and raucous nightlife is more your style, head over to Uptown 17th Avenue, notoriously known as the Red Mile for the hockey jerseys worn by Calgary Flames fans partying in the streets after games. 
  • The Winter Olympic Games are source of local pride for Calgarians: Calgary was the first Canadian city to host the Olympics, and the Olympics greatly benefited Calgary’s economy. If you’re looking for something to watch while you’re packing for your flight to Calgary, rent “Cool Runnings”: The mid-90s comedy starring the late John Candy is a fictional account of the Jamaican bobsled team’s experience at the Olympic Games in Calgary. 
  • Calaway Park, western Canada’s largest amusement park, is just 6 miles west of the city and guarantees a thrilling trip for the whole family with its 32 rides. After a spin on the Vortex Rollercoaster or the Ocean Motion, stick around for one of the live music and stage shows that take place at the park on a daily basis. If a day at Calaway Park seems like an ideal addition to your Calgary trip itinerary, keep Calaway’s off-season in mind when you’re booking your flight to Calgary: The park is closed from November through the beginning of May, so be sure to plan accordingly.
  • Calgary Tower is an essential component of the city skyline, and there’s no way you can board your return Calgary flight without visiting this manmade behemoth. The tower was built in 1968, and the most stunning views of the city can be seen from the top of the 627 ft. structure.
  • Don’t be surprised if you see a pair of skis or two in the luggage claim after your flight to Calgary lands: Calgary resides close to the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountain range, and hordes of snow loving visitors are booking Calgary flights to revel in the region’s excellent winter sport conditions. Banff, Lake Louise and Canmore are some of Calgary’s most popular mountain resorts, so splurge on a snowy vacation and take advantage of the Calgary cheap flights that open up after the winter holidays.
