City Information

Winnipeg

Winnipeg, MB, CA - CAXEF-0

Winnipeg is the capital of Canada's province of Manitoba, located at the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers. Art and culture are central to Winnipeg's identity, best experienced at sights including the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, The Forks National Historic Site, and the Winnipeg Art Gallery. If you visit between January and March, you may even luck out and see the Northern Lights in Winnipeg's night sky.

Winnipeg is home to a host of memorable outdoor activities, such as soaking in a Nordic Spa, hiking to Hansel & Gretel's "Witch Hut" in Kildonan Park, and skiing at Arctic Glacier Winter Park.

Union Station is Winnipeg's main train station, where cross-country VIA Rail trains depart along the Great Western Way to Vancouver or Toronto, and regional VIA Rail trains head north to Churchill. Winnipeg also connects to several Ontario Northland intercity bus routes. The Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International is the city's airport, which used to be a major stop for Greyhound Canada lines before they discontinued their service in the country.

Calgary

Originally an outpost for the mounted police, Calgary has recently transformed into a commercial powerhouse and a top-tier destination for visitors of Canada. That said, the city’s rural traces are still quite prominent, making it a great spot for everyone. One of the most iconic destinations in the city is the WinSport Canada Olympic Park, which is a tribute to the 1988 Winter Olympics. Interested travelers could take up ski lessons here, or they can simply stroll around Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame, which houses the largest collection in the competition’s history. Another great destination you should check out is the Glenbow Museum, which features amazing collections on the First Nations as well as military memorabilia. If you simply want to stroll around and enjoy a good view, Prince's Island Park, with tree-lined trails, will also be a great choice.

Its nickname Cowtown is true: Alberta beef is the staple local specialty. If you are looking for a bite of this amazing delicacy, head over to Silver Inn Restaurant. Another great local favorite is cheese buns from Glamorgan Bakery, which sells out quite quickly.

The main bus station in Calgary is the Downtown Greyhound Station located at 850 16 St SW. It is served by several leading bus carriers, including Greyhound, Cold Shot, Ebus, Rider Express and Red Arrow. The city currently does not have a dedicated intercity rail service.
