As you travel north east from Calgary towards Drumheller, the rich, rolling farmlands suddenly break away to reveal an astonishing, twisting, turning canyon, walled with multi-coloured layers of sandstone, mudstone and coal alternating with shale sequences.
Plan to spend a few hours visiting the Royal Tyrell Museum, a world-class facility dedicated to the study of Drumheller’s early residents, the dinosaurs. Visitors to the museum can explore hundreds of preserved fossils and take part in interactive displays and exhibits.
It’s also worth a trip to Horseshoe and Horsethief Canyons, Badlands Historical Center and the World’s Largest Dinosaur. The Dinosaur Trail RV Resort, located 11 km west of Drumheller in a quiet rural setting on the banks of the Red Deer River, is a good choice for a campground here.
