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.

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.

You don't need to be a hardiest soul to enjoy the Bow River in Calgary in the winter. If it's a bit warmer, bundle up a bit, and head to your nearest pathway connection to this lovely river. As the winter progresses, the sections of the Bow on the west part of town freeze over more completely than those on the southern sections where the Bow River leaves Calgary. But on warmer days, which are quite frequent with the amazingly warm Chinook winds that regularly bless Calgary, people are out walking in droves, and even the fishers grab their fly rods and rods and reels to see what the river will yield up. Remember, it's VERY dangerous to go out on the ice - stay on the pathway, or a really obvious part of the shoreline.
