Day 1: Drumheller & Alberta Badlands Tour

Drumheller

Departing from Calgary east into the endless golden prairies, the fertile land suddenly drops away into a strange and stark moonscape of weird striped hills and otherworldly rock formations – The Badlands. View the impressive Horseshoe Canyon and learn about the geology, history, and native plants and animals at the Interpretive Centre. Next is the town of Drumheller, the Dinosaur Capital of the Word, and a visit to the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology, home of 130,000 fossils of over 300 different species and one of the best dinosaur museums in the world. Explore the fascinating exhibits, watch a raptor skeleton being assembled, meet the scientists that interpret the past, and learn what happens behind the scenes to collected fossils. Leaving Drumheller, we’ll head to the Atlas Coal mine for a guided tour of this fascinating national historic site. Then a stop to view the Hoodoos, unique geological formations that resemble sandstone giants. Return to Calgary late afternoon.

Testimonials

"I and my 14 yr. Old grandson took this tour last Sunday with Ray. It was a great tour! Well organized and pacing was good. My grandson took the guided walk and really enjoyed that experience. Ray was a top-notch tour guide, very knowledgeable and interesting. We were a small group and he used the opportunity to make the trip a very personal one." - Dawn T.
