From river rafting to pathway exploration, Calgary’s must-do activities are often best tackled over the weekend. However, overdue projects around the house can sometimes get between you and a perfect Saturday.
That’s where Rümi comes in.
The latest addition to the ATCO family, Rümi connects home and business owners with professional partners who can handle just about anything that needs to get done. From cleaning and maintenance to inspections and improvements, Rümi is a one-stop online solution that allows you to focus on your Saturday.
Here are just a few suggestions on what to do with your newfound extra time while Rümi does the rest.
Get a specialty coffee while avoiding a different kind of jolt
There’s possibly no better way to kick off a Saturday than venturing off the beaten path and upping your coffee game. With Rümi offering you some spare time, consider exploring your neighbourhood for a hidden cafe gem or try that new nearby coffee shop you’ve been meaning to check out. If you prefer to brew it yourself, Rümi also offers a range of home products, including the Hutch Pour Over Coffee Brewer and Brentwood Espresso and Cappuccino Maker so you can be your own barista.
Need something to toast to? Get all of your electrical needs taken care of by Rümi’s experts, including ceiling fan fixes, electric panel repairs, wire installation and much more.
Experience the best of Calgary’s waterways while your house gets a tune up
In Calgary, floating down the Bow or Elbow River is a quintessential summer activity. The Elbow is perfect to bring the family along, as it’s a smaller and slower river. Start from Sandy Beach in River Park or Stanley Park and let the river guide you towards Fort Calgary. On the Bow, depart from Bowness, West Baker, Shouldice or Edworthy Park and make your way down to Prince’s Island Park or the Zoo. No matter which route you choose, life jackets are a must.
Rümi can help with all of your indoor water needs as you enjoy the outdoors, with plumbers prepared to take on clogs, repairs, installs and anything else you need to keep the water running up to snuff.
Clean up your golf game rather than your yard
Regardless of if you’re a scratch golfer or new to the tee box, the driving range is a stress-free way to get outdoors and enjoy a sunny day. When skies are clear, there’s hardly a better view of the city’s core than from Shaganappi Point Golf Course’s range. Or, if weather conditions are iffy, covered bays like those at Golfuture YYC or Oasis Greens Golf Centre just south of the city may be your best bet.
While you focus on hitting the greens, let Rümi’s pros tend to yours. Lawn services like weed control, mowing and spring clean-ups are available to make your yard the envy of the neighbourhood.
Discover your new favourite bike pathway while Rümi does the rest
With roughly 1,000 km of regional pathways and 96 km of trails, Calgary has no shortage of places to pedal. Cyclists can cruise the Bow River pathway in the city’s core and venture northwest towards Bowness or southeast through Inglewood. Hit the trails early if traffic is a deterrent — a beautiful Saturday spent along the paths is popular for a reason. In the city’s south, Fish Creek Provincial Park offers a great trip for the whole family, made even better by a stop at Annie’s Cafe for an ice cream cone.
With Rümi in your corner, you have more time to experience everything the city has to offer. From carpet, upholstery and duct cleaning to EV charging installation, water tank work, home inspections and much, much more, Rümi is here to empower Calgarians to take back their Saturdays.
