Calgary in December

I am planning a trip for 3 days to Calgary in December. I am hoping to get any ideas on tours. etc for a day trip to Banff & Lake Louise. Any other ideas for things to do and see for a solo traveller would be much appreciated!

Thanks!

Hi Sarah, welcome to the forum ~

To get to Banff and LL in December, you would be able to take the Sun Dog Tours shuttle on their winter schedule. See this webpage

http://sundogtours.com/airport-shuttle/

Or you could take one of their winter tours:

sundogtours.com/package-category/…

As for things to do in Calgary, look up top in the green bar, where you can find "Things to Do." Browse through there to see what appeals to you. If you did anything in Banff, it would mean a day trip, I think. 2 hours to get to Banff from Calgary, 2 hours back along with whatever you decide to do in Banff. That would leave 2 days for Calgary. Decisions, decisions.

I bet if I said Browns Lagoon, you would defo know what I was talking about. :-)

"Browns Lagoon"

I bet Sarah does not. :)

G'day Sarah. This is something between Mufti and myself as Albury is my home town, and I doubt you might live in South Albury.

I am not a winter visitor but I suggest to do an overnighter at Banff and to get up to Lake Louise as well in that time frame. LL will be frozen but it is still worthwhile going to see.

Sun Dog no longer does a shuttle from Calgary to Banff. That's probably because there was too much competition from the established shuttles, Banff Airporter and Brewsters, both of which run year-round.

in winter, Sun Dog runs the only shuttle between Banff and Jasper.

Because I am a Canucks fan I can't believe I am saying try to take in a Calgary Flames hockey game. Ask the person next to you whats going on, us Canadians love to brag about our hockey knowledge.
