This winter was long and like you, we cannot wait until the grass is green, the sun is high and our city’s best experiences return for another season! One of the most enchanting things to do with friends, family or your special someone? Hit the Bow with Illuminated Escapes, a company that allows Calgary residents to rent a glowing kayak by the hour.

Under a blanket of stars, guests will soon be encouraged to climb aboard a transparent boat, connect to a built-in Bluetooth speaker and enjoy a leisurely paddle through Waterfront Park.
