Flying to Calgary is easy thanks to the Calgary International Airport (YYC), which receives arrivals from all over the world. The airport is located in northeast Calgary, about 20 minutes from downtown in light traffic. Rental cars, taxis, limousines and airport shuttles are all available to take you to your final destination.


From any direction, the drive to Calgary features good roads and unforgettable scenery. The Queen Elizabeth II (QE2) Highway brings visitors from the south and north, stretching from the Montana border north to Edmonton and beyond. Travelers from other Canadian provinces generally arrive via the Trans-Canada Highway, which stretches from the West Coast of Canada to the East. Calgary is about a two-and-a-half hour drive from the US border, three hours from Edmonton, six-and-a-half hours from Saskatoon and 12 hours from Vancouver in fair weather.


Bring your camera: bus travel to and from Calgary passes through a variety of beautiful landscapes. The Greyhound Station in the west end of downtown has regular arrivals from all over North America. Red Arrow buses from Edmonton and Red Deer offer drop-off downtown.
