Drumheller Southern Alberta

An hour and a half east of Calgary, in the heart of the Canadian Badlands lies the town of Drumheller. Make a stop at the visitor information centre. You can't miss it – it’s at the base of the World’s Largest Dinosaur. Climb up inside the enormous T-rex to its open jaws for a panoramic view of the surrounding badlands. Then discover more of the beasts lurking around the town. Spend time exploring the Royal Tyrrell Museum, one of the finest dinosaur museums in the world.
