The Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site is considered Canada's most complete historic coal mine and offers visitors a range of interpretive tours, on the surface, underground and up into the last wooden tipple in the country. We tell the amazing stories of the miners who came to seek their fortunes in the Drumheller Valley, in the heart of the Canadian Badlands.
Located in Brooks and close to Alberta’s largest man-made lake – Lake Newell – the Brooks and District Museum Visitor Information Centre is housed in the Brooks and District Museum and situated adjacent to the Kiwanis Campground. We are open for 10 months of the year and provide free WiFi, a small gift shop with locally made products and hot and cold beverages. Our friendly knowledgeable staff will help direct you to your destination and provide travel recommendations for attractions in the area and for the province of Alberta.
The town of Trochu, located about an hour southeast of Red Deer, is home to the world's largest golf tee. The towering 12-m tall tee stands just outside the Trochu Golf and Country Club.
Alberta's Badlands are unveiled as we depart from Drumheller or other pick-up locations and venture through the scenic Red Deer River Valley. A fleet of PT Cruiser convertibles allow for unhampered 360-degree views of landscapes, creating WOW! moments around each corner and at every hilltop. Not your average day trip!
