Beautiful clear water, flows from the nearby (100km) mountains and winds its way through Calgary. Many scenic sights. Wonderful for summer floats down the river.

We were in Calgary in winter, and the family still curses me for taking them on a walk along the Bow River in -28C weather. But it was worth it. Stunningly beautiful parklands and the semi-frozen river. Look out for black squirrels and Canada Geese. But wear lots of warm clothes and then go get something hot to drink when you're finished.

The Bow River is a National Treasure. Blue Ribbon Fly Fishing (go with a local guide) rafting, scenic....I recommend you start high in the mountains...

No matter where you go or time of year it's lovely to see. Lately we noticed the eagles, which are incredible. Fun to see people fishing too.

Absolutely breath taking, the water is such a beautiful colour, so peaceful and serene. The falls in banff are particularly beautiful and captivating.
