Canadian Badlands Dinosaur Private Tour


Check out Drumheller, the coolest town you've never heard of!

From the moment the vast Alberta prairies give way to the dramatic moonscape of the Canadian badlands you'll be astounded by the landscape.

Part wild west and part Jurassic Park, Drumheller has something for everyone.

Visit the Royal Tyrell Museum to get your Dinosaur fix. See hundreds of life size exhibits and many local finds including our very own Albertasaurus.
Kids and adults alike will enjoy climbing the stairs into the mouth of the worlds largest Tyrannosaurus Rex for amazing views of the Red Deer River Valley.
For a taste of the wild west we'll visit scenic Horsethief Canyon and travel to the unique town of Wayne for lunch at the Last Chance Saloon, complete with real bullet holes in the walls. (Don't worry, I have him under control now!)
Many other sights await you on this full day adventure.

Itinerary

Depart Calgary, drive 1 hr 45 min to Drumheller.

Stop at scenic Horseshoe Canyon for a short walk and photo opportunities.
Check out the worlds largest dinosaur. Climb the stairs into the mouth of the giant T-Rex for amazing views of the Red Deer River Valley.
Stop at the Star Mine Suspension Bridge where you are welcome to follow in the footsteps of the miners who used the bridge to access the mine sites across the river.
Stop to marvel at the Hoo Doo's. (Don't worry, they will be explained)
Enter the Guinness Record books and cross 11 bridges in 6 km to reach the tiny town of Wayne and the historic Last Chance Saloon for lunch.
After lunch we're off to the Royal Tyrrell Museum to see some real dinosaur fossils!

A Recent Review of this tour

An amazing experience with Greg. It was nice to have the personal touch. Greg gave us a lot of extra info you would not have received on a large tour. We went at our own pace, taking pictures where we wanted and even took a detour to Tim Hortons! The sites were stunning and the lunch at the Last Chance Saloon was delicious. A fantastic day!
