There are so many wonderful things to try in Calgary when the weather’s nice and the flowers are in full bloom. In this article, we listed some fun activities you can try with your family and friends. 

It might even give you a date idea or two! 

1. Go mountain biking.

Winsport is not just for winter activities such as tubing, skiing, and snowboarding: you can actually also enjoy mountain bike trails during spring time. If you don’t own a bike, they even have rentals fit for any age. 

Don’t know how to bike? They offer lessons as well so you don’t have to worry. 

It’s the perfect activity to take kids of all levels. Whether they’re in nursery or preschool levels or in elementary school, there’s something for everyone. 

High school kids can mingle amongst each other through this activity. Those in college and coming home for spring break can take advantage of this time to bond with their families. 

There are also different levels for adults depending on skill level. As for pricing for this activity, expect to shell out around 220-240 CAD for four days. 

2. Enjoy nature with a photo walk. 

Since all the flowers are in full bloom and the foliage will be magnificent, this is the perfect time for a nature walk and even a family photo shoot

Calgary has so many nice parks and gardens you can enjoy. So, ready your best hiking clothes and cameras and enjoy the beautiful sights on your nature walk.

If you’re feeling a little fancy, you can have your pictures taken by a professional photographer

Imagine the quality of the photos you’ll have on your mantel! 

3. Shop for fresh produce from the farmer’s market.

Enjoy all the fruits and veggies that are in season by shopping at the farmer’s market! This is the perfect time for asparagus, herbs, radishes, spinach, salad greens, strawberries, and apricots. 

There’s nothing like quality and fresh produce straight from the source. Your dinner will be a scrumptious spread for sure! 

4. Go on a Rocky Mountain Sidecar Adventures tour. 

Imagine getting the motorcycle experience you’ve always dreamed of without actually having to drive a motorcycle. Get to experience the sights of the open road while feeling the wind on your hair while an experienced guide gives you a tour. 

Spring is the perfect time for this because the tours are weather-dependent. You’ll also ride in comfort because each sidecar has a charger and USB port, sheepskin that will keep you comfy and snug, and safety gear. 

You can also talk to the whole group on the tour using their state of the art communications technology. It’s definitely the ride of a lifetime! 

5. Go white water rafting with Mukwah.

This is the perfect activity for the adrenaline rush seekers! You can go with your family and friends for the ultimate team building experience. 

Don’t worry because your safety is a priority. All the guides on the tours are certified to perform first aid, CPR, and swiftwater rescue. 

They’re also accredited to perform the tour. They’ll even give you a safety briefing to ensure that you are also in the know about what to do and what not to do.
