Canadian Badlands Canadian Badlands

This is the home where the dinosaurs roamed. It’s still epic. Get ready to explore some remarkable rock formations and fossil beds. It’s enough to transport you to another time. Definitely take your photo with a towering hoodoo in a prehistoric glacial valley on horseback. ● Get lost: Canadian Badlands hiking is otherworldly. Seriously. Grab a map, then get yourself to Horseshoe Canyon. You’ve never seen anything like this. ● Dinosaurs: As if you could visit the Badlands without a trip to the cretaceous period. In addition to the Royal Tyrell Museum, try the Trail of the Fossil Hunters, an easy walk to the site of a 1913 fossil dig.
