At 18km (11mi), Calgary's +15 Skywalk represents an extensive pedestrian skywalk system.

The covered skywalk system makes it easy to get from A to B quickly, or avoid bad weather. You can also go shopping, or stop for a drink or lunch at one of the many little stores and restaurants along the way. By using one of the three levels (there are +30 and +45 as well), you can experience an unusual view of the city.

    The + 15 Skywalk connects almost all the buildings in downtown that is, you can walk around the city without having to go out. Super in bad weather. The buildings are connected by glass transitions, one has a great view of the city.

Where to stay in Calgary

South of the river is where most of the action happens in Calgary, and that's where you'll find the best selection of places to stay. Downtown, the central neighborhood located on the river's southern bank offers the widest range of choices, with access to several of the city's major metro stations a big plus. For arts, nightlife, and quality of living, go to The Beltine, known for its cafes, restaurants, arts, and entertainment. If you're just visiting the city briefly but want access to onward transport links, choose accommodations located close to the city's international airport.
