Calgary to Las Vegas is an epic road trip adventure taking you from Canada and across several US states. The direct drive from Calgary to Las Vegas is 2095km and takes about 19 hrs 27 mins in normal traffic. We recommend breaking up the journey for a more laid-back and immersive road trip.
For the most direct route to Las Vegas, it is best to drive Highway 2 through Lethbridge to Highway 4, cross the border at Coutts and ride the I-15 straight to Las Vegas.
