The Bow River starts in the Rockies and goes through the north part of downtown Calgary. In the summer, you'll see many people in the city floating down the river in inner tubes and little rafts.

Not far at all . Depending where you are staying, it is a nice walk.Many hotels are located next to or very near the river.

The Calgary Downtown is basically spread around the river so from most places in the area, the river is just a small walk away! Just ask any of the bikers on the roads and they will tell you which way the river is because they are most likely going there too! It has a great bike path next to it, and all of Calgary Downtown is very accessible for bikers!

The Bow River is downtown Calgary, approximately 6 streets away from the shopping and pubs on Stephen Street (8th Avenue). Stay in the Delta Bow Valley and you will be close to both (within 2 blocks). Everything is walkable in downtown Calgary, and there are signs everywhere for tourists.
