Unique Outings In Calgary

Calgary offers many unique and hidden gems. Have you ever wanted to try surfing, but aren’t able to make it to Hawaii or Los Angeles? Or pet a kangaroo but can’t head to Australia? YYC can make your dreams come true!


If you have ever wanted to learn how to surf, or just practice hanging ten, the Bow River is the perfect place to catch some gnarly waves. The river conditions at the 10th Street Bridge location allow for world-class, safe and adjustable surfing, and has been approved by the City of Calgary. Nicknamed the 10th street wave, this has been highlighted by Tourism Calgary as one of Alberta’s hottest spots for surfing. Don’t believe us? Watch for yourself! If you’re not confident on a board, you can always pack a picnic and sit on the shoreline to watch adventurous Calgarians ride the waves.


Have you ever wondered what a kangaroo feels like? Cobbs Adventure Park gives Calgarians a chance to pet kangaroos and meet other exotic animals as well. You don’t have to travel to Australia to meet these cute little animals, Cobb’s Adventure Park has many different ones you can hang out with all day long! 


If you are looking for a delicious brunch on a poolside patio, Hotel Arts is the place to see and be seen. Known for their amazing food, beautiful outdoor pool deck and patio cocktails, it’s perfect for weekend brunches or a staycation. Hotel Arts charges a fee for pool access, so you don’t need to stay at the hotel to enjoy the luxurious perks.
