This iconic landmark in Calgary looks good in a picture on its own. Now, add in the river, downtown views, and a perfect view of the setting sun. It is as if a postcard came to life.

Located at the very south end of Crowchild Trail, this spot gives you a great view of the sunset with the mountains and the Glenmore Reservoir. This spot has lots of 365Ā° views of the city that are amazing at any time.

Scotsman’s Hill

There is a reason why so many pictures you see of downtown are from this vantage point. There is a perfect view of downtown and the Stampede Grounds. You can also turn it into a physical trip if you so desire as there are a set of stairs that take you from the grounds to this spot.

Scotsman’s Hill is an amazing view of the city, but everyone has that on their IG somewhere. This spot gives you a different view of downtown with some amazing results.

Beautiful views of the city and some prime picnic areas make this the perfect spot for a sunset date night.

And, weather permitting, of course, you can stick around and maybe catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights, which have been seen from this spot before.
